33.1mpg (over nearly 17,000 from new, equal measures of Motorway, A Road, and urban) - interestingly it is gradually but perceptibly falling, as it was whisker over 34mpg after the first 7k miles!!
Best trip 42mpg (60 mile A road precession on the A49)
Best tank average 36.7mpg (a few long trips),
Worst tankful 27.5mpg (two weeks driving up and down mountains and snaking passes in the french alps - probably never got above 4th gear!)
(On the way back doing 90-105mph solid for 4.5 hrs it returned 32.2mpg - that probably qualified as the fastest tank drain too!)
(you can probably tell that I'm a sad git with a spreadsheet...my defence is that I have to keep a detailed record of my miles for work. eh hem)
Ran my first tankful of v-power diesel through it the other week, by accident, and interestingly saw a 9% increase in mpg...now I wasn't previously a believer in these special fuels...but I'm going to try it again and see if it was a fluke.
love it? of course...as for the sound, took a 325d driving colleague on a business trip, after a while he asked was this definitely a diesel as it sounded like a big v6 petrol!
