I get between 21 and 31mpg from my tdv8 depending on the sort of driving, running around its usually about 22/23 and on a run its 26/27, 31 is the best I've had by doing a lap of the M5/M42/M1/A1M/A66/M6/M5 at whatever the speed signs said, mostly 50-60mph. Those figures are all calculated from the pump, the dash display tends to read 1mpg higher than reality.

I think there is a Fuel Consumption thread on here, lots of posts from owners with all the different vehicles.

Thanks again for all the additional info, it is helping shape my thoughts on the Rangie I will be looking for. I am quite excited, and nervous, TBH

As for the estimated MPG, I don't think I could live with single figures, I would be spending around £450 a month just on fuel Shocked. But never say never hey!!

On a recent trip travelling 120 Kph when possible I achieved 8.3/100 via the display which is a little optimistic. Real world around 9/100. I am well pleased with the SVD's economy. M16 SVD 4,4 HSE with a few extras, Sold R50 , Wife SQ5 , BMW R1200GSW.

The early 5.0SC had some nose bearing issues as well as timing chain guides wearing. I believe these were resolved by late 2010. The issues were almost always the result of very hard driving

Some scarily low MPG figures there!

Sorry, another random question.

Why a Sport rather than a FF?

I do have to say that I am a man who, normally, expects a Full Fat experience. No skinny Latte's, low fat sausages or diet mayo for me.

Thanks.

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

Oh that is dead easy - FFRR with 3.6 TDv8 or TD6 engine didn’t have Dynamic Response handling or such good braking in my experience ( I had a 3.6 TDv8 FFRR Vogue after a TDv8 RRS - RRS had the trick handling and Brembos, FFRR didn’t unless you went to the S/C or later 4.4 SDv8). The fitting and trim in the FFRR are very very nice even in lower spec cars But they roll worse than an ocean liner in a storm when you want to drive it around bendy bits of road, otherwise it is a supreme cruiser and as good offroad. If you can find an L322 Vogue SE 4.4SDv8 in your budget it would be a magic car with decent economy and limo ride but also great handling. The last L322’s were 2012MY and badged as the Westminster Edition when they were replaced with the current L405 which was also light enough to get the same V6 diesel (in a lower power output 292bhp rather than 309of the HSE Dynamic RRS) - What Car? Mag rates the 3.0TDv6 VogueSE as the L405 to have. If you enjoy a “blast” on twisty roads the RRS is the car to have unless you can get the S/C FFRR which had the Brembos and trick handling as standard. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for June delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 22 years and 11 LR products.....

Thanks again Tim.

I do have my heart set on a V8 Sport at the moment but I just wanted to know. If there is one thing I dislike with driving it is a lot of body roll - unless it is a Citroen Ami/Dolly/2CV. I don't want to start a trip in the front seat and finish it sitting in the rear Confused .

Apart from the wait for me to be able to get rid of the lease car and get a RRS, the other big issues at the moment are; growing list bits (mats, possible tyres, possible battery, IIDTool, full service and gearbox flush etc.) and purchase price creep - I started at £10k to £12k and and now looking often at £14k to £16k Laughing.
