      Brag about your gas mileage!

      15.5 S60 FWD....Cruising Highway in Eco + Some City Driving (10%). Had to take off Eco mode a few times due to elevation and road steepness. And to pass of course...None the less, 555 miles is pretty commendable for a 17 gallon tank!

      My best on the 2012 R-D is ~28.5 MPG over trips from NC to VT @ 72MPH.

      1221 KM = ~785 Miles. How many liters are in the V60? I'm guessing it has a much larger tank than the S60 (17 gallon / 63 liters).

      Sorry, don't worry about the Trip computer, I meant the distance to empty on the right. 1165 kms till empty.
      I'll give you the hot tip, that didn't end up happening

      Normal lead-foot driving is about 25 mpgs in mixed city/hwy miles with my 2012 S60 T5

      Highway only at about 65-70 mph is usually about 28 mpgs

      Highway only 50-55 mphs with no A.C., tires fully inflated, driving slow, etc gets about 33 mpgs

      These numbers, especially the city, are very subjective. The kind of terrain, length of trip and ambient temperature plays a big role on how much that mileage is.

      Agreed. I live in Seattle and have gotten 18-19 mpg city on a few tanks.

      Totally agree. In the city typically average 18.5mpg, freeway 26-28mpg. On a recent 1,000 miles road trip, fully loaded, with a ski rack and cruise control set at a comfortable 75, I averaged 20mpg.

      Eco Mode helps a lot, but terrain is definitely a factor. If one lives in a mountainous region, with a lot of incline, gas mileage will certainly be affected.

      My 2015.5 V60 with a brand new 2.0 turbo drive-e engine just got 33 mpg on a 500 mile drive with the cruise control set at 75 mph, eco mode on, A/C on, premium gas.
      I often get 23-27 mpg with my 12 mile mixed commute.

      These are my calculated numbers after gassing up.

      My trip statistics readout is usually 2 mpg higher than what I calculate when I pump gas (miles driven since last fill up divided by number of gallons needed to fill up).

      When I filled up this morning, the estimated range on a full tank was 630 miles (1,013 km), but that was after a 45 minute stint at 65 mph and there's no way I'll actually get that much range. Overall I'm pretty happy though - I've consistently gotten about 400 miles to a tank in mixed driving despite the inline 6.
      I'm not good, I'm not nice, I'm just right.

      Hmmm... Well my S60 has gotten ~600 miles before on eco mode. But you have a T6 vs T5 so that does make a difference.

      I also have no Eco mode on my 2012. 🙂

      I'd need to average 36+ mpg to go over 600 miles on a tank and I just don't see that happening with the 3.0 litre I6. I'm just happy that I'm getting better mileage than my old P80.

      With my 05 S40 T5 AWD 5 speed automatic I'm getting around 10l/100km (23 mpg) in daily mixed driving. Once warmed up, the trip computer shows about 7l/100km (33 mph) on highway driving conservatively...

      17 gallons of usable capacity. Officially 17.8 gallons, but it's not realistic to assume that a person will be coasting into a gas station just as the last bit of fuel is being used up. For real world range then, have to calculate off of about 17 gallons and not 17.8.

      At 36 mpg, 17 gallons would get me 612 miles. I just don't see that happening.

      Terrain really has an affect on mileage. If you're going up and down steep terrain, you will clearly be burning more fuel on inclines. That being said, I believe I got pretty close to 600 miles on one drive. Since I am adverse to pushing my vehicle to the next gas station, I avoid coasting on fumes!

      There is no way to get 600 miles on the I6. The best I've ever obtained was nearly 500 miles and I averaged just under 30 MPG. I was also travelling 55-60 MPH through Virginia and North Carolina backroads.

      I just recently did a 26.6 MPG and got to just over 420ish miles which took ~17.1 gallons to fill up. The car was telling me I had 40 miles left to empty. That route was my daily work commute, where 70 percent of the travel is I-95 and the rest stop and go lights in the cities. That stop and go really kills the mileage.

      Yup. Sounds pretty spot-on with my experience. I live well outside the city and commute on a train so most of my driving is at 60-65 on freeways which comes out to a range of just around 400 miles. I would imagine that at least 450 miles and possibly 500 miles could be in the cards if I did a long freeway-only trip but anything in town just kills mileage. And 600 miles is just not happening with this car, no matter what the dashboard range estimate says. I wouldn't trade the I6 for better mileage though, this engine is a real gem.

      Did a highway trip from PA to MD. Mostly flat and the computer showed 38.0 mpg. 70 degrees, 2.0 e-drive, FWD running 89 octane. If I put in 92, I would expect a little more MPG.

      No Eco Mode + AWD + T6 = Less fuel economy for sure.

      How many miles was trip?

      1 You should be running premium on Volvo Turbo Engines....While 89 is "usable" there is a noticeable performance difference if you ask me. My car felt sluggish the one time i did 89.

      2. Do you use top tier fuel? Just another suggestion, it keeps your engine valves cleaner.

      It was about a 300+ mile round trip. I came from a Saab 9-5 3.0 V6 Turbo using 89 Octane and i got 273K out of the engine and it was still running strong. The Volvo is plenty fast as I'm also a first responder and it is faster than my old 3.0 V6. It just doesn't have the growl that the V6 did.

      Yes, I run top tier gasoline. No "no name" stuff for me. Every so often, I will put 92 in, but the gap in the price between grades has gotten insane. I didn't notice a big difference in performance with the higher octane. Maybe the computer had adjusted to the 89 and it takes a few tanks to readjust.

      I have a camera which can go in the spark plug hole and I can check the combustion chamber to see if there is any carbon build up when I change the plugs 40K or so. I can try to look at the top half of the valves with the camera once I get it past the throttle body.

      Doing 55 with these S60s is tough to do when she wants to do 80

      Its funny doing 55 enjoying my savings in mpgs listening to relaxing music and realize what a comfortable suspension this car has...what a ride....

      But realistically, who really wants to drive 55 ?

      But it's a sure way to get 33mpgs and save a few dollars for a pack of gum, can of beer, turkey jerky etc at the gas station

      Seriously. I had to physically restrain from going into boost to get the 26.6 MPG number I obtained the last fillup. It was terrible. I'll take the 2 MPG drop and have a bit more leeway and fun on my commute. It's why I bought the car in the first place (I don't drive boring cars for 2 hours a day).

      I’m just impressed that my 3850lb AWD 325hp 6-cylinder V60RD can get 8.5l/100km at 120 km/h.
      Next Volvo will be the Polestar 2, so I won’t worry about the price of 94 octane (nor my next service interval) any more. Maybe we’ll keep the V60RD as a classic example of peak gasoline engine technology.

      I can brag about my gas mileage but other way around XD
      Living downhill, doing mainly street driving, I am doing a great..19/20mpg in average with T5 V60

      That being said, on highway at 60mph (Thanks WA), I goes in an average of 30/38mpg which is awesome
