That's fair enough - that certainly would not bring out the best mpg in any engine petrol or diesel !

I don't think you would have recouped the extra money you would have spent on a diesel though and your clutch is probably lighter in town

Mid to low 40's if the weather is cold and mid to high 40's if its warm.

All of this is a mix of a and b roads

As the others say don't trust the trip comp mine is out by +1.4 miles all the time

After a series of long motorway runs and some A and B roads, computer now showing 53mpg over the last 1500 miles. I really gun the car so pretty pleased with that - remap and Ultimate fuel may also be helping!
When I first got the car never got better than low 40's, so maybe now the engine is run in it is helping also?

Might be time for a remap, just for fuel consumption of course

Thanks guys.
I may be in the market for a 159 ti soon, can you send me some more info on yours if you do decide to sell, Thanks

I get around 45mpg, fairly short journeys with a jtd 170. If you are a sipper then you won't be punished for your light throttle use by a clogged DPF as the 1.9jtd in the GT doesn't have one.

i get 43ish with heavy spirited driving all the time! I can't help it. it soooo much fun. I particularly like changing from the m58 to m6 as its a double roundabout and s bend onto the slip, with my tires i can do 60mph around them then race up to my cruse controle res speed of 98mph!

Pre-remap mine was showing 42-43mpg average for my 20 mile daily commute. Post remap (180) thats now 47-48. Route to work is county lanes and 30mph towns and is a mix of spirited driving (when I have a BMW/Audi up my chuff) and obeying the town speed limits, your honour. On longer journeys it does rapidly increase.

Well I'm getting nowhere near 45 as you will see from my Fuelly and while I don't cane it I'm certainly no miss daisy. I too was considering a Ti - possible part ex? in all seriousness though, folk in here who have remapped and removed the emissions control ****e report vastly improved figures and performance - that is the first thing I will be doing when/if I get a 159. Better the devil you know after all.
Details on your car on here?

Member car:

GT 1.9 JTDm

I used to get about 48-49mpg, mostly on dual carriageway with some town centre.

I recently moved house and my commute is now all M1-M25 at a steady 60-70mph due to traffic. I've got a solid 54-55mpg out of the last three tanks which seems good.

I stick to the Shell Vpower stuff, although mostly because it kept smoke on start-up to a minimum.

Just got myself a Blackline 1.9JTDm and the computer says its averaging 38mpg - should i just ignore this and do the sums as you guys say above - fill up, reset the trip and work it out that way? Or what!!

I was hoping it would be in the low 40's but maybe im asking too much!! Im driving it pretty sensibly at the moment - 9 miles each way to/from work and a little bit at the weekends but not massively as really its my going to/from work car....help please and should i be looking at additives and also i read something about an EGR valve?? Whatever one of those is!!!

Thank you!!!

I'd walk! You can't be doing the car a lot of good for those short trips, especially on a regular basis ...
