Anyone living in the So. Cal., greater Los Angeles area share any mileage figures on their LR2's ?
#47 of 55 24 mpgs

Hello I recently purchased an LR2 (still under 1k miles), but so far I'm pretty happy with the MPGs. The trip computer showed 24 mpgs on a 150 mile road trip with some limited stop and go. My 45 mile commute has been about 22 mpgs, there is a fair amount of stop and go and the start and finish of the commute. Overall pretty good for a 4,000 lb vehicle, but I do take it pretty easy on the throttle, top speed of 75.

I have had mine for 14 months and have 33,000 miles on it.
I get about 19 around town using 87 octane gas. On a long trip this summer.. (over 3,000 miles) I got 24.6 using 87 octane which is excellent.. I use the standard mode most of the time..

I'm averaging anywhere between 20 and 22 highway on a daily basis, depending upon traffic, and around 18 city. Apparently, mine didn't have a "breakin" period, because the mileage has never changed since I picked her up. About 3 times a year, I take a drive across southern tier NYS, from Vermont to Lake Erie. I average 24.6-25,5 on this trip, which is approximately 1800 round trip.
Reset the mileage at the beginning of each trip, or at each fillup. Driving habits contribute to the mileage. Keep a steady, even speed when traveling. Doing this, I save about 2-3mpg or more.

Pretty amazing results - on a trip from San Diego to Huntington Beach last year, I set the cruise control to 60mph and actually got 28mpg (according to the computer - which I had reset at the beginning of the trip). On average though (without using cruise control) I typically get about 22-23mpg highway and about 18mpg around town. My 2008 LR2 has just over 16k on it, is dealer serviced and I only use premium - 93 octane.

Just took a 50/50 highway/city journey today about 2-1/2hrs round trip. Averaged 26.5 mpg!!! Down only 1.5 mpg from my San Diego to Huntington Beach trip last year. I must either drive really slow compared to the rest of you (averaged 52mph with that 50/50 mix) or you must all be stomping on the accelerator all the time. I'm testing my mpg's on my '04 Disco II now and will let everyone know how I fair with that (realizing this discussion is about the LR2 of course).

My 08 LR2 now has 23,000 miles on it and, drove from Ohio to South Florida, 1,000 miles there, 1,000 miles while there mostly city and 1,000 miles home combined gas mileage was 23.4 MPG!
Very happy with the LR2 experience and service. If I were looking for a new vehicle, an LR2 would be my only consideration...
#54 of 55 does fuel catalyst help with fuel mileage?

does fuel catalyst help with fuel mileage? I talk to a LR2 owner who said he add fuel catalyst to his vehicle. He got 32 MPG from his LR2.
#55 of 55 can fuel additive improve mileage?
Jul 21, 2009 (11:30 pm)
can mileage be improved with fuel additive?
I talked to one guy who said his LR2 mileage improved significantly in 29mpg by using fuel additives. I am high suspicious of his claim.
There is no way the LR2 can beat the RAV4 V6 in mileage.
