so would mpg be affected on 300, 330, 360s, would they be average around the same if each model had standard mods and remap done to it?

same mods and same mapper would give you pretty similar mpg. A remap can sometimes increase economy, or gain power with no sacrifice of fuel economy as the standard maps are rich

Been driving my shed this week. 1995 Rover 216 Gsi auto. Picked it up recently, 1.6 so sips fuel in comparison. Love it but can't wait to get back into the X tomorrow.

In comparison the ISF has managed 19.46MPG over 8100 miles.

My X has rods, turbo, clutch packs etc. At 476bhp it's putting out 57bhp more than my ISF and has 2 fewer gears so it's bound to be less economical.
If you've upgraded your injectors the MPG reading is not accurate. This only works with the standard 560cc injectors.

Pity you live so far away, if you are ever near Leeds drop me a PM.

Yup, I've never trusted the onboard readout on any car. I use the standard full tank fill method and track it on an app called Road Trip on my iPhone.

I have an FQ-300 SST, manage 24-28MPG on a daily commute through town, 29-32 on the motorway. However if found the initial 5-10min of driving when cold really hammers the fueling sitting at around 10MPG and runs pretty rich (normal). Averages are averages and driving from cold can't be avoided but if you drive the same road but starting warm you can see the difference, i.e. short journeys are no good.

I've also noticed on the X that WOT or no throttle seems to be discounted from the average. If you are at the top of a really big hill (and reset your MPG counter shortly before hand) and go down it with the foot off the accelerator my average MPG wont change and the instantaneous MPG counter will remain at '-.-'. If I just really lightly touch the accelerator (to the point the instantaneous MPG counter starts to read) it will start to include that distance in the overall calculation and the average will increase.

When you coast downhill in gear the ECU stops putting fuel into the engine, unless you get near the point of stalling, so the instantaneous MPG calculation goes to infinity hence it showing '-'. Interesting that it doesn't include the distance covered during that time in the average calculation though from what you've explained.

Coasting in neutral however will burn fuel to keep the engine turning over - similar to sitting at a junction - so based on what you'd said that will be included.

I've had a regular 25mpg give or take an odd mile either way for the last 12,500 miles. It's a 330 sst, and has had a variable mix of roads from back lanes to motorways

My MPG display tends to come in low

By working it out (full tank is 10 gallons) - I average 24-26, mostly country lane cruising to work and back, occasional WOT and occasional motorway.
