    Default Get this......

    Well this ws my first full week doing my work mileage with my Diagnostix box.

    Filled up on Sunday night, After a 409 mile round trip running a steady 55mph, then on Tuesday did another 176 miles then yesterday before filling up I did another 118 miles. Trip read 12.2 ( Which I don't trust) Gallons used and the range was showing 0.

    Thats 703 miles to a tank full!!!!!

    I then filled up again and put in 53.48L. Divide this by 4.55 to get gallons. This was 11.75G. Divide by 703 miles = 59.82mpg average.

    I carried a litre of deisel in the boot just in case as I wanted to see what I really got.

    So although the Diagnostix box gives you more BHP etc, driven very gently increase's your mpg just as they state.

    Well pleased,but it was very painfull driving like Miss Daisy all week!!!

    The bit that really made me laugh was the range when I filled up. It stated 1189 miles

    Greetings Mat

    That is superb mile per gallon. I have been travelling to Dundee and back (Forres) for the past 2 days, all on the B roads I might add (Grantown - Breamar ) and I have been averaging 36.5 m/gallon. At present I have a 1.8 Sri Vectra C. So it makes me happy to see that I made the right choice by selecting the 1.9 Cdti for my next car.

    Keep well, regards sent

    Hi Steven,

    You won't be disappointed, the power is great, the economy also impressive. When it loosens up you can get some really good figures, easily in the 50's mpg on a run if youre not hammering.

    Its a bit noisier at low speed (1st & 2nd) otherwise very quiet. Just a nice turbo whistle which I like.

    I have now showing 46 mpg av speed 23mph so you can see the traffic I've been sitting in, although I was taking it a bit easy cos I was concerned about fuel so no booting it which is unusual.

    I

    Just one tip. Diesels can be a right pain in the bum if you run out of fuel. Because of the system pressure you may need to have the system bled through by a mechanic/workshop. You'll find this is mentioned in the manual.

    Not with common rail deisels, they are self priming. I have ran out of fuel twice while trying to get as much out of the tank as possible.

    Simply fill up and start up, just like a petrol.

    The older 2.0 and 2.2 DTi's will need priming if you run out.
