ZT 2.5 (190 and 160 ) MPG

Could people give me a good (and honest!) idea of the fuel consumption figures they get with their ZT V6's please?

One a 45 mile commute, mostly motorways, but about eight miles of B road to reach the motorway, would it be better or worse than my current 620ti?

Thanks in advnace

I give mine a good booting pretty much all the time, and some sensible driving on the motorways i usually get around 25.8mpg. When i went abroad with it last week, she got 30mpg on a steady run with 3 blokes and a boot full of luguage

as above i get a constant 25-27 mpg or on a tight arse day i can get mid 30s but thats rare (the way i drive) having gone from a ti to the 190 the ti was better on juice BUT i think that was down to the 5th gear the 190 really needs 6 gears as it doesnt have a "cruise" gear
the 190 wasnt designed to be good on fuel just ot be enjoyed

you wont look back

I get about 60 miles to £10. Its nearly £5 a gallon these days. So I guess around 28 mpg!!

The 180 is slightly better for motorway use due to the gearing, sitting just under 3,000 rpm at 85mph. Average return over 6k being 28.2mpg.

I appreciate you asked about 160 and 190 but should give you a general idea.

My newish (18K) 190 is doing 29mpg.

Lots of slow driving going to work, but includes the odd hyperspace moments, so worth it I think.

Can't comment on the 160's though sorry.

Mine does about the same, maybe a bit more but not much.
