    Default Wow! A new record.

    While I was in France last week, I filled up with diesel and the range display showed 535 miles! I averaged just over 40mpg for the whole 750 mile trip.
    That's the best I've ever done -I bet some of the 4-cylinder diesels have done better. What's your best?

    Phil

    PS
    Oh, and French diesel's about 1 Euro per litre......

    From my 1.9cdti, average 44-45mpg on normal day to day pottering around. Get nearer 48 on a longer run, but not hanging around. Did have 54mpg at one point but that was at 56-60mph and I got fed up with that quite quickly!!

    I drove a full tank about 6 months ago (1.9 CDTi 150), driving like Miss Daisy for the whole time, with mixed driving I got 694 miles from this full tank. I don't know what that is is MPG, but it was very painfull the whole time!!!!!

    But presently I am averaging 46.7mpg. I think I may have the highest mileage 1.9 on here at 41300 miles, but I have to say they get better with more miles!!!

    I've been in that territory when I had my V6 Omega! I miss the car, but not the consumption......
