    Default Fuel Consumption

    I brimmed the car on Wednesday, done just over 170 miles and the tank is now showing just under half a tank and 240 showing on the trip computer.

    My right foot has been down quite a bit plus i had a good run down the motorway.

    Is this normal consumption for the car and the style of driving ???

    I had a manual 2.0 dti, a tank would do 440 miles on average, so it being auto I don't think you will be far out if it returns 350 miles per tank.

    I get 400-450 from my 3.0cdti on mixed driving, mostly round town and I'll get 350ish.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I have a 2.0DTi manual and had a run down to Harrogate at the weekend. Car loaded up with wife, kids and usual luggage. Total round trip was 470 miles and refilled with 41.74 litres. I make that to be 50.70 mpg. Tried to keep a steady 70-75 without using CC.
    Not bad at all I think.

    Suprised if your 2.2 diesel is that low, my 2.2 petrol gets 36 to the gallon(averaged across 14K) which is usually 420-430 on a tank.

    I've a 1.8 '52 with 73k on the clock. I managed to get 410 miles from a full tank which is roughly about 53 ltrs (some petrol did splash out yet at 0.87 pence per litre)

    I am on a big economy drive at the moment, Just filled the car up, driving very steadily its showing as 442 miles on the range, and i have done 68 miles so far...

    I dont go into all this MPG malarky, its just what it does to a tank i am concerned about....

    I have had it down to 375 miles to a tank before, which for a diesel isnt too good!
