    on a Jig? Actually I should have mentioned ... if it is a facelift you also should not see any smoke (as the facelift is fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter).

    Blummin Eck! I'd be doing this .... !!! Different people seem to report different figures from the V6 Diesels I guess depending on their driving style, route to work, how often they use the car etc etc but personally I have avereaged 31mpg over the 8500ish miles I have had the car since July and I usually get around 300 - 350ish miles to a tank which costs about £55 at 91p/litre sort of prices
