Re: fuel consumption

Hiya,
What mileage have you got on the clock??
Mine didn't start doing a decent mpg until after 14K when everything had loosened up. Now average around 46mpg
Cheers

Re: fuel consumption

Hi Mitch, yeah the mpg was pretty lousy in the early days. Mine gets used for work a lot. I'm at about 55K at the mo and the thing just rolls along a treat. Mostly motorway work but it rolls along at 80 with about 2700rpm showing on the rev counter and as I said about 46 -50 mpg. In the low mileage days it seemed to be working hard to push along at any decent pace and definately sounded like a diesel!
Cheers

2002 1.9 JTD - mixed useage - averages 50mpg. On motorway useage it will do 60mpg. Range of 700miles plus.

Re: fuel consumption

Re: fuel consumption

At the other extreme i've got a grand total of 1k on mine now, after a couple of weeks, and behaving myself, i'm getting around 50mpg on motorway & about 40-50mpg mixed roads (similar 50/60mph 75% of the time). Obviously this is with a virgin engine and will improve with time so I would be very disappointed with your figures.
I've seen on a number of threads that either when accidently or deliberately disconnecting the battery and allowing the engine management system to 're-learn' can work wonders. Anyone tried this themselves?

Alex
