Picked up my ex demo 159 1.9jtdm sportwagon two weeks ago and now have started to get fuel consumption figures sorted.
I have to say I am gob smacked, they are absolutely awful.
The car has 7k miles on the clock so I guess it might free up a bit yet, my last car was a 156 2.4 sportwagon and I never saw less than 38 - 39 and that was foot planted in the carpet, generally it was mid to late 40s.
On a long run over weekend I drove there (250 miles) very carefully and managed to get 41.1 mpg mainly motorways, on way back (250 miles) foot to the floor and 30.1mpg. Around town I'm seeing 30 mpg.
When in bought the car I thought I would see better consumption figures than I was seeing with the 2.4, it seems not.
Any one else getting same figures as me or do I have a problem ?
Having said all that - I love the car to drive
but just wish I could have afforded the 2.4, just thinking - would a chip mod of the engine improve the MPG ? I see Angel tune the 1.9 to same power as 2.4.
