F pace Type S

Recommended Posts

Just been reading the road test of F pace petrol.

I have an Fpace 3 litre S and can recommend it to anyone who is thinking of buying one. I had a 5 litre XF type R before and I think the F pace a better car. It rides really well and is quiet and comfortable with plenty of boot space. I have done 20000 miles now and have not had any problems with it. Fuel consumption is around 30 average but on long runs can get 36mpg which is good for an engine of that size.

I did put a deposit on an Ipace but have not taken up the offer yet as recharge points are a problem. When more sites are open and universal charging points are adopted I will probably have one. The other option of course is the new Fpace 5litre.

Traded in a Lexus GS300H for a 68 reg Fpace S. only 24k miles loving the sound and everything on this car. Can’t wait to go on a decent run in it.

I traded an Evoque (2017 2 ltr HSE LUX) for mine. Reg Dec 2018 (68 plate). 11.months old with just 5k on the clock. Fully loaded & loving it. Had it 17 months now but due to lock down only put another 3k on it. 2nd year service was done last November at only 8k!

I only get 23.7 mpg out of my petrol 3.0S, but I have a permanent grin on my face...😁

My S Type Auto 2.5 Petrol averages around 23.5 mpg., local driving. Came home from Bodmin, Cornwall earlier this week and it return 32.4 mpg.  I to know about the smile on the face when driving. Comfort and a smile ......... cannot be beaten.

Cheers, John

So, driving on the motorway over Christmas, thought I'd give the old, how many mpg can I actually get, thing.

Reset all the trips and put the cruise onto 73mph, no idea why I chose 73, I just did.

I managed 29.3 mpg, not a lot of smiling took place though.
