Take the average combined figure and that's what you'll be lucky to see on a run empty.

Currently getting 18-20mpg towing and just over 26mpg on a run. 2016 euro 5 3.2 auto ranger wildtrack with a canopy on the rear, did see nearly 40mpg on holiday when had a roller shutter on it with 2 adults and 3 kids plus rear fill to the brim with holiday stuff

Used to get 36 ish mpg in my old Vauxhall vivaro that was it over loaded and given no mercy. By far the best van I’ve had so far on fuel new Merc sprinter I have is no where near as good.

I would just like to check whether you're all going off what the dashboard comp says for economy or actually working it out by how much fuel you're putting in against the milage you're doing. My 3.0 hilux on a long run without trailer will do mid 30's but this is rare. Most mileage is short journeys on b roads with a fair bit of towing av mid 20's to 30. Dashboard always comes out about 5mpg higher.

My vivaro didn’t have The dash board that would tell you that’s based on a 70L tank and getting between 550 to 600 miles out of a tank.

Fair enough just checking its amazing how many people I've disappointed when I've got them to work it out properly.

30ish average on a fairly heavily loaded T5.1 transporter. It’s mostly doing local stop start jobs so doesn’t help mpg.

edit:checked this morning!

My old transit Mk5 mwb hi top did 25-30 on b roads/ town.
3.2 shogun did 20-21.
Disco does 23-25.
Range rover does 10-13
It looks like the newer vans haven't got any better on fuel.

Transit Custom L2H1 crew cab I’m getting about 27mpg, that’s fully loaded, on a long run empty I’ll get near 35mpg if I keep it under 70. Pulling a trailer I get 19-20mpg. Like @GazCro said, the trip computer is overly optimistic.
