    Default Poor Fuel Consumption Vectra 1.9 cdti sri

    I purchased a Vectra 1.9cdti sri automatic 08 with 20000 miles on the clock from Arnold Clark three weeks ago.Having driven approx 800 miles since my combined average fuel consumption has been reading between 26.7mpg and 29.4mpg.I thought this was on the poor side so took it back for them to check it out today.An hour after leaving it with them they phoned to say that they had downloaded software to the ECU and I should take it away and see how it performs now.After driving about town all day the average consump now reads 23.4mpg.I would appreciate any input ,views or suggestions regarding this.Is this average for this car or should I go back again and tell them i'm still not happy.

    I would take it back you should be averaging around 35mpg on 50/50 urban and motorway driving.

    Thanks for your comments so far.There is no diesel smell and apart from this problem the car is a joy to drive.I went back to Arnold Clark today and they have booked it in again for next Tuesday when the workshop foreman will have returned from holiday.
