    Default CDTI 160 fuel economy???

    Has anybody else got any fuel economy issues with the CDTI 160? Mine is truly terrible, the computer shows 27-28mpg, but when i checked it the (old school) way it was showing 32.2 mpg, still crap!! My wife drives it and doesnt do any real long drives but i would still expect better than 32mpg, i have went back to my dealer who has told me to do 3 full tank checks before going back to them. I will update with my findings over the next few weeks.

    What does that entail? Is it something to do with the car needing to be driven at above 2000rpm for 20 mins or so? Do I need to take it to a dealer?
