Swift Kon-tiki Remarkable MPG

The overall average since taking ownership of the Kon-tiki almost a year ago, and according to “Trip A” on the on board computer is 26.2 mpg. The average MPG for trip B, 270 miles from Boroughbridge to the Channel Tunnel is an impressive 29 to the gallon – I’ve never known it run like this before – long may it continue. Traffic and weather conditions were clear other than a ten minute crawl over the Queen Elizabeth II bridge (Dartford). Tyre pressures are set at 80 psi all round. Tyre pressure information was given to use from Michelin via their help pages.

The motorhome is operating at near its 5000 kg maximum.

I think Trip B will remain unset for the rest of the trip and see what happens!

Swift Kon-tiki Remarkable MPG

The Kon-tiki marches on, returning 28.5mpg….

Update: 11/04/2014, after another 367 miles, the average for Trip B is now showing as 28.5, which is not bad given the hills in Belgium etc.

Update 12/04/14 – despite climbing the 2000 metres to the top of the Simplon Pass, the overall average for trip V was a respectable 27.4 mpg!

And finally, arrival at Lake Garda, just over 1100 miles since the start, gave a return of 27.9 mpg.
