The most I ever get is about 500 miles. Not actually checked properly.
I did 854 miles going down to Devon and back (Manchester), plus driving there and a little back here. That was almost 2 tank fulls.
My trip suggests 40mpg (at best on my 17 miles trip to work and the same home, obviously). Evenings are usually a little better (warmer temperature perhaps?).
Local use severely lowers the MPG. Unlike my previous 1.9 GT the average MPG on the Auto trip is dreadful and even 'current' looks crap at 30mph. Mine prefers motorway driving.
It never averages (trip) more than 36mpg/tank. Quite **** for diesel I think because that's why we buy them I think?
On the trip to Devon on the motorway the trip still showed 40. I do think a DPF delete would improve things however a remap is surely not necessary on a 200bhp car is it?
Grand Prix starts are woeful on my car, until 2000rpm it has the characteristics of one of those dreams where you are trying to run.
I suspect every car on the road would beat it to 30mph
I don't do traffic light GP's anyway but perhaps just as well
Lastly on my 1.9 GT I regularly cleaned the EGR, in fact about four times a year. I could do blind folded most of the time
On at least two occasions when that happened it would not accelerate past a few MPH. On one such occasion at a traffic light I very nearly died doing so.
This makes me think the slow start on this 159 might be down to carbon build-up, probably everywhere
It's the **best diesel I've ever owned (the 1.9 the worst
). I do not intend buying another Italian diesel again.
All that said on the whole I do enjoy the 2.4 5 cylinder engine but the MPG is woeful in my experience but I never expected it was never going to be that good.
**I've only owned two.
