Peugeot 206 1.4 HDi
 
Hi all!

Don't know if I put it in the right subforum, but I bought a "new" car!
It was time for me to switch to a car which is more suitable to make more kilometers each year. The Peugeot 106 served me well, but with my calculations, the 206 would save me a lot of money.
I have no numbers about my fuel consumption yet, but I make enough kilometers to get back at that soon ;)

Greetings,

Sjoegerd

Congrats on the new ride.

What is the 206 rated mpg wise for compared to the 106?

The factory specifications of the 206 are: 54,8 mpg US
The factory specifications of the 106 are: 36,7 mpg US

I used to do around 40 mpg with the 106. Beside that, diesel is 30-40 cents per liter cheaper than petrol but the roadtax is much higher.

Finally made a photo of the car:

After a half tank I filled it up. Got to 20 km/L, that is about 47 MPG (US). I wasn't even trying so I know I can do better :)

Fuel usage after about 14.000 km is 19,35 KM/L, and still not trying :rolleyes:.. But it is still pretty good. Most of the time I drive between 80 and 110 km/h with constant speed. Love driving the car! :D

I understand that you are trying to get a baseline to improve on?
Because it is definitely not due to a lack of good tips here...

When you finally get around to ecomodding, how far do you want to go? Bumping tire pressure, grille block, engine insulation, Kammback, ???

It really is setting a accurate baseline. I know the car is capable to be more fuel efficient without even doing modifications.

I hope to build a grill block in 2016. I have a nice idea that will smooth out the front bumper. I will not go to a Kammback, maybe smoothen the underside of the car out.

First it will go for the yearly mandatory test in January. I hope it will pass without a lot of investment.

Does your P206 already have an engine undertray? Iirc, these were stock only on the diesel-engined models, while the petrols had none.

Yes it already have an engine undertray. But I saw a new type Peugeot 308, which has a much smoother bellypan with multiple plastic undertrays. Maybe it is possible to make something like that.

Is a vegetable oil conversion (such as those Elsbett kits) a viable option to you?
