Hi, I've had my b max around 3 months now, I love the car apart from the fact I'm only getting around 31-32 mpg, is this normal for this engine? the official mpg figures for this engine are 47.1 mpg I know these are usually not accurate but I was still expecting around 40mpg

My 1.4 is about the same age as yours Dan89. I bought it in July. It's only used for short journeys around town and mpg is around 32 to the gallon.
I was not expecting much more than that to be honest.
Was you referring to mpg around town or on a run ?

Hi,

Both my 1.4's have returned 37-39MPG mixed, 40+ on long runs, but down to the 31-33 mentioned by the OP.

Yes, that's about right for short journeys arond town. 40 mpg on a run. It's not a particularly economical engine, but the 1.6 is dreadful.
