    Eek Cdti 120, 19 mpg??? Wtf!!!

    right had my cdti 120 a week now and needed to fill up today, 330 miles and fuel light on!! thought it was a bit premature, anyhow i filled up and when i goy home i worked out my MPGs. 19.8 MPG WTF ive been told it should be around 40 MPGs on a combined cycle!!

    so, wheres the problem at chaps, i allready know my thermostat is broken, and have ordered a new ect to go with the stat, but i cant see that causing diesel use this bad, SO, given that.

    what else could it be??

    Might sound a bit daft but you could check that there are not any leaks?

    i am a little heavy footed but ALOT of that tankful was eaten up cruising at 80-90 on the motorway with the cruise control on!!

    it just seems to have an insatiable thirst for diesel!!

    as for leaks, already checked, i doubt it very much, no little messages left behind on the drive!!

    I would check for leaks and would partially blame the 'stat. they drink fuel when cold.

    Start off with sticking a bottle of STP fuel system cleaner in the tank.
