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

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.
