I'd really like to know the real world gas mileage the evoque can produce. Please let us know what you have been getting?

Refuelling first time after 660 kms (mainly roads): 52,5 liters, which makes 7.96 ltr / 100 kms or 35.49 miles per gallon (Imperial).
My Evoque is 2.2 TD4 Dynamic Automat.

Second refuelling after 1158 kms: 8,58 ltr / 100 kms, driving mainly on motorways and in Helsinki city center.

I am getting 420 miles to a tank and a combined 25mpg. I like that a lot compared to combined 12 from my H2. Plus being all wheel drive I am super impressed. P.S. this is in Colorado

So far our Evoque has been registering no more than 30 mpg and as our driving is mainly extra-urban, on the face of it this is somewhat disappointing, as the excellent consumption was a major deciding factor in our purchase. We will refuel and try to calculate a more accurate mpg,but so far the consumption seems rather higher than the hype would make you believe .

You must have read "hype" from the European Diesle 2-WD version. The Gasoline 4-WD version is rated at 28 highway. I've been averaging 25.5. It would probably be higher if I stayed at the speed limit and didn't have so much fun passing people. The car I traded in had a 1.5L engine and 96hp, now this has a 2.0L engine and 240HP. Nice improvement in efficiency when you look at the power coming out compared to the amount of fuel going in.

Nope - I double checked the figures on the Land Rover Website to make sure I was looking at the correct model and fuel type. (I've got a 2.2 Diesel 190). In fact at the end of last week I fuelled up, drove mostly motorways for 200 miles. It registered an average speed of 65mph - which only returned 35.2mpg - not quite the average 44.1mpg that was claimed. I realise the mpg figures are calculated in ideal conditions and are always a bit aspirational, but this is way off!

I love the car - but the fuel economy is being used as a selling point which I think is quite misleading.

So far, 2 weeks of driving, 1000 miles on the odometer I do about 340 miles on a tank, in an average of 20 mpg so far.
I drive in NY, highway and local (considering normal to low traffic area) and never seen any better than this until now.
safe ride,

Hey ferymac, how is the diesel to drive? I think I read it has 310 ft/lbs of torque so the must still scoot.
It's great to drive. I used to have an Audi TT which was also diesel - and obviously the Evoque's not going to handle like the TT but still, the accelleration is more than adequate. 0-60 isn't that fast, but in the higher level, 50-70 for overtaking, it feels pretty good - and that's whats most important - not beating the boy-racers from the lights! Besides - the issue in this thread is the fuel economy so my right foot has a helium balloon tied to it all the time!!

I get almost exactly as advertised. With highway use I get around 30 mpg, in town around 24. This car is easy to drive, fun to drive, and I love it as much after a month as I did day 1.

Didn't to expect to like the Galway Green, but bought and love it!

I'm getting 30 mpg driving 65 mph on the freeway. You get punished for driving it like a sports car though. Kick it into sports mode, get aggressive with the paddle shifters and it gets about 18 mpg. Another thing worth mentioning is the gas gauge isn't linear. Mine goes from full to 3/4 tank in less than 50 miles, then settles in.

God! you guys must drive it feathering the throttle. I think I drive a lot slower than usual coasting as much as possible and using the cruise control between lights and still get 18.3 to 18.9 average. that means i am averaging about 14 city 23 highway. That aint that good. Still Better than my honda element (15-20mpg) not better than my supercharged Elise (20 - 28). The honda element is about the only car ive seen that does better in city than highway. Pushing 80 mph at 4k rpm with a box shaped design is like dragging a building with a lawnmower.

This is more LOGICAL, as I get exactly the same average as you do and I have been checking for over 2K miles now.
Never got any better than that.

I've been getting 20.5 mpg with my city/highway mix. Not as good as my Volvo C30, but definitely better than our Tundra! :cool:

I seriously need some advice to get the milleage you guys are getting. Today my average from the new tank is about 16MPG. That is very bad considering that I am very very gentle with the pedal. It starts to bother me to the point that I am at the stop light and when it goes green everybody goes and I am left way behind because I wanna see if my fuel consumption decreases. As soon as I get to 25mph I put the cruise control and gain speed with the buttons on the steering wheel. AC always off..... what do you guys do?

Just flipped through my trip computer which hasn't been reset since new and it's showing 22.3 mpg which includes freeway, off road and spirited (paddle shifter) driving. Window sticker says 22 MPG combined so mine's getting as advertised. Car has just over 2000 miles.

That's interesting and intriguing!
My EVOQUE bearly makes 14MPG in a mix driving, I drive NORMAL, and I have never went close to 20 even in a pure highways driving at MAX 70 MPH.
As mentioned before, I am driving from NYC to MIAMI on the 17 FEB and I will then check it FOR SURE, because this vehicle does not reach better gas mileage than my sport V8 6.4 vehicle, which I get 14.3 i n the city and 19.3 in the highway without much struggle and never BELOW 70MPH...go figure!

Not sure if I also have a problem with my electronic gauge...
I will shoot a picture today, will show you what I have been getting for the past FULL tank of gas, mixed driving, I will do that today before I have to fill up the tank, which is when I reset the trip.

SO DON'T BE SURPRIZED.
Take care,
braztang

If I set cruise at 65 MPH I'm consistently getting over 30 MPG on the highway. 14 MPG is not acceptable and you may want to take it to the dealer.

As Promised...I KNOW YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE IT!
I did not believe myself and I took the car back to the dealership this monring, and all electronics checks out okay, this is the ACTUAL MILEAGE for more than a 3/4 tank of gas, mixed Highway/Local driving, never exceeded 70MPH, never drove it CRAZY, really, normal drive, GUESS WHAT the salespeson told me! it is common to get around 14MPG! HOW COME! I see some posts telling over 20MPH!
Again, I will take it to FL in a few weeks and see what happens, than I will post again with HOPEFULY new numbers.

WOW that is pretty bad and I thought I was doing something wrong. I am still at 17 to 18 but driving very gentle. I would not imagine what would it be if I were to drive how I usually drive.
