    Default F430 average fuel consumption

    Bit surprised mine is running at 16mpg - I drive as someone put it like Mother Teresa. What mpg do you average?

    Surprised high or surprised low?

    That sound about right. My 360 averages between 17 and 24 depending on the journey.
    I would suspect when you are on it, you'll be sub 10....

    Howard, if you can get a car like this anywhere close to 20 you should be happy. My Boxster only does 20 around town so if a Ferrari can get close to that figure, happy days. I've never measured the consumption for local use but assume the figure is similar to yours. Don't quote me but I think the official figures were around 15-18 urban ?

    Bloody hell, that's impressive!!
    We managed 24 over 2500 miles in the 360 - Generally avoiding motorways but steady cruising when on the big roads. A bit more grunt in the twisties and the mountains. I expected our figure to be closer to 20.

    If it was our daily driver, it'd be of interest. As our beautiful plaything, it is what it is


    I suppose overall, the Ferrari way in the UK is to be so concerned with how many miles we put on the clock, the fuel that goes into the tank seems rather insignificant

    Given the way that I was driving, surprised low. I cant have been using more than 200 bhp to move a 1.5 tonne car at the speeds I was doing, and fuel consumed should relate to power used. So why would I use twice as much fuel as in the family car of similar weight and at similar speed? The engine must be horrendously inefficient.

    With the miles I do , it doesnt really matter, but it is a bit odd.
