2.4 JTD miles per tank?

I drive a 2001 2.4 jtd and I'm getting in around the 500 miles out of the tank (60 litres i believe) the most i've gotten was 550.. The miles I do would mostly be motorway miles but there is some town driving also..

My friend has an 2002 2.4 jtd (same engine as the 2001 I think) and he's getting only 280 "if he's lucky" to the tank, he's got a remap and a few other mods (240bhp).

How many Miles does everyone get to the tank?

550 ish if I behave, 400 or less when booting it.... I do mostly in town driving, and tend to go all out when I do get on the open road...

I get about 550 out of my 2007 159 - but I think the tank is 70 or even 75 litres.

My 150 bhp gives me about 520 miles per tank full.

"a few other mods" ... and 240bhp ... he's either BS'ing you or he's done some serious mods (new bigger turbo etc) ... jasons has got a target for 240 for his 10v JTD and hasn't made it yet and he's got an FMIC, bigger turbo, induction, freeflow exhaust etc etc etc ...

anyway with motorway driving (with my 207bhp remapped car) I usually get about 600 miles, with town driving about 420 ... and I don't hang around either ...

Brimmed it yesterday ,took 45 litres,mileage showed 405 miles, mix of town/motorway.

Mine is a remapped 2002 original 150bhp model. may not be the most economical but is the most fun!

Remapped 10v and i get around 550-600 with mainly A-road mileage, closer to 500 if i do a larger portion of town driving.

Personal best is 627 miles - Nottingham to Solihull with the trip computer warning 'limited range'!
That's with an Angel tuning remap and BMC air filter
