Stanley Says - PHEV MPG Challenge

Over my many years working in the motor trade, I've found it extremely fascinating to observe consumer trends in the automotive market.  Up until very recently, it was very much all about the speed, power and appearance that affected the types of vehicles on our roads. Don’t get me wrong these still remain hugely important factors, but there's been a shift in the market and there’s now an increasing desire for economical, fuel efficient, ‘green cars’.

These electric/hybrid 'green' cars are not just the new trendsetter on the market, they're destined to be the future and that’s not just because they're kind on the environment – they're kind on your pocket too.  

One of the more fuel-efficient vehicles around is the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, a plug-in hybrid that dramatically cuts your CO2 emissions; reduces your fuel bills and you don’t have to spend a single penny on road tax. 

Mitsubishi states that it’s possible to do a 32 mile trip for a matter of pennies in EV mode and combining a 2.0L petrol engine with an electric battery they reckon the average mile per gallon is calculated at around 156mpg.

The industry recognises that it’s not easy to calculate the MPG on plug-in hybrid electric cars so we decided to put the Outlander PHEV to the test to see exactly how many miles to the gallon that we could get.

Our Mitsubishi Sales Manager Gavin McBrearty drove the car for a few weeks, commuting to and from work, ferried his kids around at the weekend and drove on and off the motorway – the results you can see for yourself in the image below - an astonishing average of 910.2mpg.

If there's anyone up for a bit of a competition - then I challenge you to beat this average MPG.  Got your own PHEV and think it could beat this or reckon your own car is up to the competition? Send your photos to us via our Facebook page.
