What engine power do I have & is the fuel consumption right?
After only having had my 04 1.9 JTD 16v since Tuesday (I drove her Thursday) and the Mrs has taken it up north for the weekend, I havent had opportunity to put many miles on her (92 on Thursday). But, the trip computer gave me an average fuel consumption on the way to work of 74.4mpg and on the return leg 62.1mpg.
The journey starts with country lane for 1 miles, with a few stop start junctions. Then enter dual carrage way for 15 or so miles, large roundabout with lights, then back onto dual carrage way for another 10-12 miles. After this, single carrage way for 20 or so miles ranging from 40mph to 70, oups, I mean 60. Then about a mile in-town driving. THe return leg is the same, just in reverse (not gear).
So, I wonder how accurate this is and what others are getting from the same car? I am fairly light footed and can srape out mileage from any car, but I wasnt be ultra economical as wanted to see what power she'd have for normal driving.
Then my second question: I have seen power figures for this car as both 140bhp and 150bhp. How would I know which mine is?
Many thanks for any and all input.
