So I have just got back from a 120 mile round trip. About half was motorway and the other half B roads... on the way back I saw the MPG was quite good so ended up driving like Miss Daisy to see what I could get out of it.

Now I know MPG is not something I should be looking at when driving a 911 but I would be interested to know what people have actually got out of them.

On a long motor journey with cruise control set to 80mph, I can easily get 33mpg.

I have always got 21mpg, no matter how I drive, sometimes 19! the gen2 should get better mpg though right? 27+ is pretty amazing from a gen1!

I got the following coming back from the Netherlands on a quiet Sunday morning. Given that the cruising speed was well north of the average for most of the time I was pleasantly surprised by how well it did:

DFI engine and PDK gearbox make it very achievable. Would be much harder in a gen 1.

I'm ashamed to admit that this is my best mpg achieved over a 130 mile trip. My excuse is the road was busy but flowing and I had no option other than to blend in with the other traffic.

I very very rarely drive in town due to all the traffic calming and am averaging 24-25 mpg. Since fitting a filter and the pipe delete it has gone down slightly in mpg due to enjoying the noise more.
I hate dropping below 2000 rpm when driving as it feels wrong so happy with it.
My best was 34.1 on a round trip to the Scottish borders on busy but flowing motorways doing 50-70 mph. Never got near that since though
