You will never get quoted mpg.
The quote is purely to enable you to compare like with unlike.
If it was what you should achieve, how can they take into account your light or heavy foot? Body weight etc.
So, they remove everything that they are supposed to in the regulators guidance and then run the test indoors to cut out hills and wind.
Now you should be able to some extent to be able to compare a B-MAX with another make of similar design and engine size/type.
You have to enquire around and then take the average of the result of your enquiry as what you could expect from your B-MAX
You could start a thread here Entitled - your real on the road mpg (no comments - just engine, gearbox, fuel, mileage, usual number of bodies in the car (alive) and mpg please) Comments in the corresponding Real mpg comment thread.
Then we could all do some research!
Mine: 1.25PS 1L Ecoboost manual over 3 years average 46.7 mpg, petrol, 20k. 2 bodies
Current: Same vehicle 36.1 mpg 450 miles (similar to the old car at that stage. 2 bodies
