Help - 2.4JTDM Spider fuel economy
Need some advice - have recently bought a 2.4JTDM spider, decision based purely on its stunning good looks and supposedly economical fuel performance. Technical figures state extra urban at 52.3, urban 30.7 & combined 41.5mpg. I'm struggling to even get 38 as an average, and thats with motorway driving and the tiniest about town.
Any tips anyone can give me?? I've tried driving at 50mph, 75-80mph, changing gear at low revs, at high revs, and nothing seems to be making any difference. And when you think of it in terms of approx 260miles less from a tank of fuel than the spec, thats a massice difference. If it carries on like this, i'm gonna have to sell.
