    My computer over reads only by 1mpg though so mustn't grumble depending how acurate the "trip consumpsion" is I've used 12.25 litres in 126.3 miles, giving me 46.8mpg, which isnt bad considering that's a mixture of town and motorway I'm also waiting until my "trip consumption" gets to 3.4 Gal, as that is how much £20 buys nowadays so I can see how far I can go on £20

    Is it just me, or are the other "diesel heads" obsessed with MPG figures? I've even resorted to going to the trafford centre via the M58, M6, M62 and M60, just so I don't have to keep stopping and starting at traffic lights on the duel carriageway. (plus the motorway way is quicker!)

    The comp on my 2004 3.0 V6 CDTi SRi says between 43-45mpg most of the time!!

    It's the range numbers that fluctuate the most in mine!! I went out last night & when I left my house the range said 56 miles left. By the time i'd got to my mates with a little detour all on quiet A & B roads with a total journey of 11 miles my range left was 25 miles. So my comp had dropped 31 miles & i'd been going quite steady mainly in 5th & 6th!!

    Left my mates 3hrs later. Journey home was 8 miles & my raange said 26 miles by the time i got home!!

    The fuel gauge hasn't really moved but my range is 29 miles down after a steady 19 mile round trip.

    When i bought the car it had 9 miles range left according to the comp & it was a 2-3 miles trip to the nearest petrol station & the range hadn't altered by the time i got there. I put £30 of diesel in & it said i'd got 210 miles in the tank.

    I've done 170 miles since then with according to my comp 26 miles left. It's a 20 mile round trip for work so gonna see what the range is after tomorrow night shift!! Looking at the fuel gauge I don't think the range will have dropped much!!
