MPG


A lot of figures are banded about when it comes down to actual MPG from vehicles, especially when towing. So I thought I’d include a table of our MPG stats.

The vehicle is a 2006 Land Rover Freelander TD4 HSE which we have owned from new. The caravan’s MTPLM is 1460 Kg. The MPG is calculated from fill-up to fill-up. We do tow other small trailers from time to time but the towing mileage is for the caravan only. Most of the solo time is commuting on A roads and motorways.

TOTALS AT LAST FILL-UP: Solo Miles =20562 Towing Miles =4305 Average =34.90 MPG (7.68 Miles per Litre)
NOTE: The MPG is based on the mileage driven between fill up’s regardless of the solo or towing mileage.

The fill up on 13/12/14 was a ‘splash and dash £30 top up so will distort the figure for that and the next top up.
The fill up on 28/9/14 included a solo run from Manchester to Isle of Wight and back giving 47.3 MPG

The mileage on the 23/02/14 included 63 miles of towing from Manchester to Chatsworth House over the hills so probably accounts for the drop in MPG.

The mileage on the 8/04/14 included 80 miles of cross-country A road towing between Winchester and Glastonbury so possibly accounts for the drop in MPG.
