    Default Economy improving with age and mileage

    Was up in Newcastle on Wed and Thurs. My trip covered 330 miles on £30 worth of diesel, including a fair bit of urban driving and not going below 80 on motorways. My rough calculations tell me that is getting on for 45 mpg. When I first got the car it would barely do 40 mpg, so well chuffed now.

    Thats a lot of miles to return the correct mpg.
    My 2.2 Direct has done about 13K and its been returning about 34-35 mpg for about 5-6k miles now. I dont think I would get any better than that really. Does a diesel take longer then?
