    Hi guys,

    I’ve had my C6 for just over a couple of weeks and I think I’ve noticed the car returning better MPG in sport mode than in regular mode.

    Am I imagining this or has anyone else noticed similar?

    For what it’s worth my previous Mercedes C Class would do this but that was due to sport mode engaging first gear whereas regular mode would start in 2nd gear.

    Can't imagine mpg would be better in sport mode...Surely with it holding gears longer for higher revs that would kill the mpg ‍♂️
    Anyway I haven't had a reliable mpg readout for ages from mine since the fuel sender stated playing up.. bloody pricey so not changing that for a while..it's had 3-4 already.. I'm reckon that should have been recall!!

    I thought the same too about the Merc but I do a lot of motorway/dual carriageway miles so for me it’s a case of the car getting up to speed quicker and then stocking cruise control on
