    Thumbs down 2.2 direct fuel consumption

    hello guys!

    I just moved recently to edinburgh and since then the fuel consumption went DOWN. from 29 mpg now I have on my BC 21.8 mpg(in almost 400 miles) . I use shell fuelsave but I am really worried about the fuel consumption because it keeps going down. the city roads are a mess because of tram works but even though I think the fuel consumption is very low. any ideas? anyone from edinburgh on the forum?

    thx

    same car as yours, and similar miles until your bc started to drop

    i use my car most around town,bc shows 30.1 on local, so yours does seem a little low, i will get 75 miles ish to £15 quid when just on local routes.

    when did it have its last service, tyre presures etc

    would a faulty thermostat cause a low fuel consumption? I read a few abot thermostats and I think mine could be faulty because when I am in traffic and not moving sometimes the gauge reaches 90-91 and after that goes down to 85...

    the range is not a static number, mine will also read a certain number after filling up but once its been on the motoway for a few mile the range will start climbing and climbing.

    what oil grade went into your car? did the air and fuel fitler also get done on your service?

    your temp seems fine? it will always rise when standing still . and quicker as there is no cold air hiting the rad when your statonary, when you drive off it will drop, i belive this is normal.
