      T6 mpg?

      My 2019 S60 T6 with P* is averaging 18 MPG, albeit for just 1,000 miles so far.

      My 2016 XC90 T6 (no P*) averaged 18 MPG over its whole life.

      I would have thought the lighter vehicle with same engine would have been higher MPG?
      I have been told that P* does not degrade the MPG.

      So maybe it is just my new owner, heavy foot on the pedal that's burning up the fuel.

      Curious as to what other 2019 S60 T6 owners are experiencing?

      How fast are you driving? What mode(s) do you drive in? How much city vs. highway? 91 octane gas?

      Drive in mostly Dynamic Mode, 50/50 highway/city and with 93 octane. I am not mashing the pedal all the time.

      Maybe it's just break in, hopefully it will improve. I average 23 mpg with my old school T6 Polestar.

      Under dynamic mode it uses more fuel, guaranteed.

      I don’t have P*, but rest assured it’s not the tune... Mine (1 mo, ~900 miles) has been hovering around the 17-18 MPG mark, though I reset the trip computer with each fill-up, so that’s definitely not a like-to-like comparison of lifetime averages.

      I can bring that average up with concerted effort, but I’ve been quietly hoping to see a general upward trend there after the “new owner, heavy foot”-itis you mentioned wears off.

      Winter gas + brand-new Engine + city traffic = Low MPG. I bet during summer months after your 10k service, with a light foot on the throttle, the Eco mode on with coasting on freeways and summer 93 octane gas, you should be well into low 30s for your MPG. IMO, MPG calculation in winter weather and/or when you have a brand new engine is inaccurate.

      I have a 2017 T6 R design awd. I commute to work in traffic, with the auto shutoff turned off -= am avg 14 mpg. I spoke to the dealer service advisor - who told me they all do that.

      The same commute in my Saab 9-3 avg 21 mpg, but I do like the Volvo

      2018 V90 T6, we live in a rural and somewhat hilly area in the Puget Sound area. Nine miles distant from the nearest town of any size where we do some of our shopping. Overall average at 23 mpg in 4,000 miles of usage. Best was a trip to the Oregon Coast utilizing primary two lane highways, secondary roads, and a very few miles on one stretch of freeway. Didn’t spare the horses on this trip, and took a very twisty scenic route home. Average for that journey was just under 31 mpg. In local use this T6 gets about 10% better mileage than our ‘07 V70 2.5T. Pleasantly surprised with the mileage, really enjoying the 50% boost in power compared to the V70.

      I had a 2019 XC60 T6 AWD loaner for a couple of days recently - got about 18mpg also. My daily driver is 2018 S60 T5 FWD - I get 26mpg with same type of driving. Supercharged T6 appears to be a pretty thirsty engine, unless coasting on a freeway 90% of the time.

      Same engine as your T8, sans electric assist. I drove an S90 T6 loaner for a week and got ~23 mpg in the city. Me thinks foot weight is a big factor.

      I get 34.5mpg in my T8. But I also get 21mpg in my 2014 S60 T5 5-cyl. Same foot weight in all three cars I don't drive like a granny, nor do I "floor it" all the time either. The XC60 T6 loaner I was driving had only 3,500mi on the clock, which could have contributed to low fuel economy. After driving 4 different recent-model Volvo's I can say that fuel economy does improve as the engine breaks in, but not dramatically - 5-7% at most. My wife's previous SUV - 2015 XC60 T6 AWD (old 6-cyl engine) was also averaging 18.5mpg (rated 17/24). The difference with our T8 of course is that the battery has some charge in it 75-80% of the time, and we drive it in Hybrid mode mostly. Again, same driving style and pattern - mostly short 5-10mi trips, 50/50 city/hwy.

      For short trips T8 is perfect. T6/T5 shows the real MPG on freeway trips. Stop-and-go is always painful for ICE engine and heavy cars.

      The point I was trying to make had nothing to do with T8 performance - it is obviously perfect for short trips, no argument. The relevant comparison is between "old" 6-cyl T6 and "new" 4cyl supercharged/turbocharged T6. Presumably the 4-cyl engine should have a better fuel economy under identical driving conditions, which (in real life) doesn't seem to be the case, at least in XC60.

      I do almost exactly 50/50 city highway and have also had 2 T6 engines with P*.

      My V90 Cross Country got 25 MPG average over my time with it, but I noticed a big jump right after it hit about 4,000 miles (had been consistently doing ~23 MPG before that). This was on premium fuel.

      Have only had my S60 for 500 miles and so far it's showing 22.4. So hoping for the same jump at around 4k.

      That said, I am almost always in comfort mode (Dynamic keeps the engine revving too high around town for my liking) and I am a pretty conservative driver. Though I have been a lot more tempted with the S60, as it sounds so much better than the V90 Cross Country did and is so much more fun to drive.

      The best was my 2017 V60 T5 FWD, which would consistently do nearly 30 and on a longer highway drive could hit 37/38 pretty easily. Though not nearly as fun as either of the T6s...

      Relatively, the high-boost 2-liter T6 is significantly more fuel efficient at low to medium loads (e.g., highway driving). At higher loads (quickly accelerating stop-light to stop-light), it's often less efficient because high boost (20+ PSI) necessitates a lower fuel/air ratio (additional fuel) to prevent detonation.

      The primary factor is the weight of your foot and, if you're doing worse than the EPA test cycle, your foot is heavier than average.

      That's strange with my XC90 T6 I average at least 21.5 and I've been told by many I have a lead foot. Are you stuck in traffic often?

      I agree with everything above except the "average" comment with regards to EPA numbers. Unless "Granny mode" (0-60 in mind-blowing 12 sec, 120lb driver only in the car, no A/C ever) is considered average

      Actually it was below freezing for much of my first 30 days of driving, and it was extreme at times (below zero).
      The average is coming up a little now that the worst of the cold it over.

      I know that battery power is dramatically reduced by extreme cold, I hadn't thought of it but gasoline power would not ideal either.

      You make great points as to why the average is initially so low. I don't think low 30s is possible; maybe mid 20s after 10K miles or so with my driving. With auto off, ECO and a lot of highway, 30 might be achievable. But in Dynamic and 50/50, I think 27.5 would be a very lofty goal. I hope for 25, but I think I will end up at 22.5. My average is now 18.6, up from initially 17.7

      I have achieved 31-31.5 MPG on my heavier V90CC T6 late last summer on a road trip. I'm sure, the V60 being lighter must be at least 1-2 MPG higher than my V90 under the exact same conditions.

      I average 20-22 with mostly hwy driving with my 2018 S60 RD. Whatever you’re getting now you’ll notice a slight improvement after break in. In summer with the A/C on I was getting 18 mpg.

      I am two months in and my MY2019 S60 T6 is still only averaging 19.2
      I have also had a loaner MY2019 S60 T6 all week and its cum is 18.8
      Hoping to see a 20 average soon...
      As a side note I will add that the MY2019 Polestar tune is a really impactful difference to the T6; almost like two different cars altogether. Having had significant time to drive it with and without, I really appreciate it now. Volvo should market it better.

      I have 2 T5’s, and XC90 and a new 2019 S60 and the S60 gets about 4 mpg more than the XC. So your logic about the car being lighter seems to apply to my vehicles.

      I found that on our 2016 S60 T5 Drive-E I actually get better fuel economy when I pull off the line a bit quicker versus driving with a light foot from a standstill. In the Eco driving guide in the car, it actually says to "acelerate quickly for better fuel economy," I tried this and it actually works. Once I reach 45 MPH which is the limit on most roads where I live, I ease up on the gas pedal and try and coast as much as possible. I've also got into the habit of using cruise control in the city which my dad always used to say is bad, however I've found that it actually helps with my MPG.

      A couple of you guys have posted in this thread that your 2019 Volvos have been in the shop for a week (inferred from having loaners for a week)...
      What's going on there? That's a long time for a car to be in the shop when brand new!

      Sounds about right I get about 27 with my MY18 S60 T5 FWD. good to know this engine performs about the same in the SPA S60.

      Not me. Mine was a one-day repair, but I still got a new loaner for the day. Defective gas tank neck in the MY18 XC60 T8 was replaced - common problem, apparently. The car had ~7,000miles on it at that time, not really brand new.

      RE: T6 mpg?

      Ive had my S60 T6 AWD since the end of January. I have 22Mpg Average with 2200 Miles using Premium gas. Most of these are highway miles. I will say that I stopped using the miles until empty counter. The gas gauge really drains down quickly especially with local driving and seeing miles until empty reduce by 10 - 20 miles every time i do a small local drive (5 minutes) was really frustrating. The reality is I just rented a Chevy Cruz (needed new tire due to sidewall bubble) and it drained the gas gauge almost the same as my volvo on my highway trips. I dont feel so bad now that I had something to compare to.
