Thumbs down Peugeot 207 - 1.4 Petrol - Drinks fuel?

Hi All,

I have gone back to using my 2008 peugeot 207 1.4 sport petrol model. I am used to having a diesel but I heard the 1.4 petrol models were good with fuel economy?

After using for about 2 weeks, i am noticing a rather large hole in my pocket from the fuel the car is consuming even just at normal town and motorway journeys!

is there a problem to solve this or can you get a remap to improve economy ?

What sort of mpg are you actually getting?

I am getting around 30 mpg but the fuel just seems to go down rather quickly which is rather annoying

30 mpg is crap, I was getting that from a discovery - is that properly calculated (brim tank, drive a couple of hundred miles, brim again to see what you've used)?

I'd say you should be getting at least 40mpg with mixed driving. At least, just so long as you're binary driving...

That's poor. My RCZ is doing top 30s low 40s.
Are the brakes binding?
Have you had it on diagnostics?

I've got a 207 1.4 vti and get about 32 mpg doing short journeys and maybe 40 mpg on a good run. They are not good on fuel basically, been a few threads on here with people with the same issue.

Remapping will decrease the performance, it's sport car, that's why it takes a lot of fuel

That's what he said in his post

"I have gone back to using my 2008 peugeot 207 1.4 sport petrol model"

I'm no aware of all Peugot 207 models

There's a big difference between a "sports model" and a "sports car"

I still reckon it should be around 40mpg, irrespective of what badges are fitted.
