dilus said:Hi icelink, just done my first long run in my new Rio "First Edition" 1.0 T-GDI 118bhp the vast majority being on the M1 and A1M at 73 mph where possible and 50mph through roadworks and returned 49.9 mpg average. Was using cruise control and speed limiter as often as I could and controlling speed using my right thumb rather than my right boot, quite good figures I think, car has only got 600 miles on it ‘�
dilus said:I have been touching 80mph at safe times on the motorway and 73 on cruise control the rest of the time.
dilus said:Due to the ever increasing amount of people middle lane hogging and sticking religiously to 70mph doing so, it needs to be done at times ”
Done a lap of the Cotswolds today in the Rio 1.0 T-GDI 120 and achieved my best ever MPG figures, it hit 55.9mpg at one point (52.1mph for the trip) might add I was driving it like a Monk believing there was an egg under the loud pedal :angel:Hi all! What's everybody else's MPG on their Rio? I am particularly interested in 1.0lr 118bhp engine. The best I had was 38.4MPG until I did accidental reset, now it is at about 35.5.
I have Rio 2 1.4 (2015) is and am lucky if I get over 40mpg.
Out of interest, where did you get it remapped and how much did it cost? How much of a noticeable difference has it made?Gt-Line here, I thought the Rio didn't have enough power so I remapped it to 150. Even then I'm still getting 55 on trips longer than 6-7 miles. Baring in mind that I'm driving like an EV driver, letting go of the accelerator going down hill, light braking, rolling up to traffic lights slowly etc etc. If I were lighter with the accelerator I'd be getting 60 - 65 mpg. 1.0 Turbo engines are crazy efficient, as long as you give them time to warm up. I work at a Kia dealership, and regularly refuel them. The petrol station is about 3 miles away, and they all get horrendous mpg on the way there. On the way back however, They're looking at 40-47 mpg, simply because they've warmed up a bit.
It's a shame Kia have discontinued the 1.4 Turbo Diesel, those used to hit 55 without even trying when they were warmed up.
And if anyones wondering, I haven't voided the warranty by remapping the car. It's well within safe perimeters, and unless something goes wrong because of the remap, I'm covered.
