Just looking at one of these, 07 plate on a Ford 2.4. Anyone have an idea of the fuel consumption I could expect to get??

Thanks

Hi Sys

Since it is virtually identical to our van, except ours is a Peugeot chassis, I would think the mpg will not be too different.

I get 34mpg from ours with ease, and a little more on a motorway run by sticking with the lorries.

I have had 39.6 mpg while mooching along the quiet byroads in France, where there was very little traffic so I wasn't too much of a nuisance at about 40mpg.

Hope this helps.

Dave

Thanks Dave would be nice to get 35 but I am not sure it is the same as yours.

Here is the one I am looking at, only got 6600 miles.


Let me know what you think.
Bob

Hi again Bob

Yes, the body shell and internals are all but identical. A few minor differences, but now't of any consequence.

Ours does have the 6 speed box which will make a bit of difference, but we had an earlier Nuevo on the previous Peugeot 5 speed chassis and the mpg was only very lightly less.

Our earlier van was even more similar, with only the bathroom being different - and heavier with its swing-wall shower.

Everyone has different priorities of course, but we have yet to find a van that would suit us better. Shame you live so far away or you would be welcome to come for a closer look without feeling any pressure from a hovering salesman.

I don't think the fuel consumption would be less than about 32mpg, assuming you don't lean too heavily on the right boot.

P.S. If you find yourself in these parts the invitation is genuine. Very Happy

Cheers Dave, we felt the Symbol was a tad small and cramped. Fantastic for days out down the coast etc as it is not very wide. But we do prefer nice solid coach built motorhomes, and it has to fit into our drive. The drive is wide but the road is narrow. Thank you for the invite, we like that area, so may call you up using the lappy and invite ourselves for a cuppa. Put a piccy of the house on, so you can see how narrow the road is.

Best wishes

Bob

Our Windsor is a larger version of the Eton, same engine 2.4x140psi, its onboard computer tells me it does an average of 30mpg and motorway driving I have seen it do 33mpg (I tend to stick at 60 on the m/ways and use cruise control)
The Ford engine has better performance than the Pugeot according to my mate who has the same size AS van size but on a Pugeot

If you were keen enough I expect Marquis would bring it to your nearest branch for you to look at.

Cheaper. Towbar. Automatic - if that appeals.

Hmmmmmm? (If they still have it unsold of course.)
