Doing a 350mile journey in the GTA sitting at normal motorway speed i used to get 28-31mpg real world. Computer said a few mpg higher. Didn't bother me at all and i did this journey ALOT every 3-5 weeks for a good few years. Mostly stuck it on cruise and stopped when i got there.
Also got a 156 2.4JTD SW and it has been averaging 42mpg real world and closer to 44 on same long run.
Just got it remapped and the mpg is approx 45mpg, but important fact is i can now travel at same speed as GTA, but faster than i did before before remap and getter better economy. Not fair test only done one long journey, but i am sure it will work out cheaper to run.
Also got a 156 1.9JTD 6 speed for my parents in law, so i am keeping an eye on this, but its economy at moment is same a our 2.4JTD. but that is based on urban driving.
