I've frequently gotten 30 mph in Sport mode in 2018 718B driving from NYC down the New Jersey Turnpike. Once you get up to speed, the efficiency is pretty **** good.I was wondering about fuel consumption and see reports of people getting 25, 30, 35 MPG.
I drive in a spirited fashion in sport only.
Very few highways
I have a new 4 month old 4K miles (broken in proper) PDK Base which I almost exclusively drive in manual mode
from a RPM POV I am:
6K a couple of times per drive
5K-6K 15% of the time
4K - 5K RPM 20% of the time
3K - 4K 30 % of the time
2.5K - 3K 35% of the time
2K - 2.5K 15% of the time
<2K ummm never
I am rarely in 7th gear
My average full consumption is around 18.5 MPG.
Is it really possible to get 30+ MPG aside from driving on a long highway in regular mode and in 7th gear at 60MPH on a windless day
Even when I am a "good boy" on a couple of my rides I cant seem to break 20 MPG
This is based on actual mileage with actual gallons pumped.
If this is to be expected I am fine with it - the extra gas per year is a minor part of the Porsche tax but just wondering if there is an issue with the car. Drives like magic and at 4K miles I would have expected the gas consumption to have evened out and even though I respected break in my consumption was not that different during breakin although I did not break 4.5K RPM's I still did spend most of the drives in the 2.5K-4K range
