    Default Low mpg with 2.2tdi

    Hi guys just after a bit of advice. I have only had my 2.2tdi signum for 6 weeks now and cant seem to get above 30mpg. Don't know if I,m expecting to much as I have mostly only cover a few miles at a time as I only work abot 3miles from home and computer says average speed is 15mph. Do you think I should be getting more or am I just being paranoid?

    its about what i get on small journeys like that mate.

    give it a good run on a motorway or dual carriageway, and see what it says then.

    i get less than 30 round town, but 42 - 45 on bigger journeys outside of town.

    Cheers guys you've put my mind at rest. Not owned a deisel in years and don't know what to expect. After reading so many threads I was thinking that Egr valve was to blame as they carbon up badly on most vectra/signums. I now see vauxhall are making new ones that self clean, thinking of changing mine as a preventative anyway.
