HV 4 disappointing MPG

Post by Meadowknight » Thu Sep 10, 2020 10:11 am

I have noted some forum members stating MPGs in the 60s. I'm disappointed that my Niro 4 HV can only seem to achieve an average around 55. This is despite me attempting to drive with a very light touch, so much so that I often have a white van/BMW/Audi/boy-racer souped up Corsa driving up my arse.

I mostly adhere to speed limits and have set the magnetic braking to maximum 3. I rarely use sport mode and only for a quick overtake (usually one of those lycra-clad individuals cycling at 30mph plus).

I haven't done a real world consumption test (eg tank to tank) as these usually depress me even more as the dash MPG display is usually optimistic. Perhaps mine is pessimistic? Should I do a check?

Anyone else disappointed with HV MPG?
