Diesel fuel consumption
Have had a 2.4 JTDM for a few months now , and although performance is great I am concerned about fuel consumption .
After reading a few posts in this regard most people are getting far better figures than me.
Currently I am getting about 12l/100 ( max 600km per tank) . Usually use BP ultra low sulphur diesel . I drive a mixture of city and highway and try to drive conservatively most of the time. Even when trying purposefully to minimise consumption I get no better than about 11l/100km .
Vehicle has +- 5000 km on odo , dealer says this is normal consumption.
How much effect will altitude affect this , Johannesburg is +- 2000 m above sea level.
Any comments as to this will be appreciated.
