Forgot to say in DYNAMIC MODEI have the 1.6 JTDM,motorway miles at speed limit is 56 MPG,mix of both is 42 MPG,i have installed an EGR restrictor plate with 8mm hole,have noticed a very slight improvement,i don't think you can just blank the EGR without getting it mapped out,could be wrong?
Probably will need mapping out bud I'd imagine - ah so frustrating, I should've read a few more reviews - if I know I'd be hitting low 40s I probably would've opted for another 147/159/mito 😬I have the 1.6 JTDM,motorway miles at speed limit is 56 MPG,mix of both is 42 MPG,i have installed an EGR restrictor plate with 8mm hole,have noticed a very slight improvement,i don't think you can just blank the EGR without getting it mapped out,could be wrong?
That gives Me hope! That's exactly the sort of figures I was expecting.140, 150, 170, 175?
Have had over 78 MPG out of my 170 when really trying. High 60s when keeping up with traffic, 55 when no motorways.
Absolutely granny'd it along the motorway this morning... 42 mpg 🙄The official MPG is 60mpg. I get that on the computer if I sit at 60mph in 6th gear on the flat. Between 50 and 60 for motorway driving seems normal. I would check the air filter, nice pleasant job !
take that lead boot off .... i average 41mpg or 39mpg with the AC on ... mixture of town, country roads with the occassional city trip.Could be worse, my petrol 170 has never seen over 37mpg. It's usually around 29mpg, I'm just glad I don't have to drive in to the office anymore, it would bloody bankrupt me at £1.79/l of E5
The best we have ever got on our 170 is 52mpg. Mixed dirving normally averages about 43-44mpg.
On a real cold day, especially with the heater on the car takes ages to get up to temperature, and on a shorter tip you can easily get less than 40mpg.
The car is totally standard.
They are not especially great on fuel for a 2.0 diesel.
You may get a better MPG with a remap and EGR delete, but it will only be a couple of MPG at best.Aggh don't say that 😅
Could be a bit of a deal breaker for Me.. we cover hundreds of miles a month and I bitched for 3 months about how uneconomical our beemer was and we should swap for a G 😬
The 1.6 jtdm we had was an absolute peach in teams of power and economy, granted it was in a way lighter car but I figured the 2.0 would suit the G well and return around 50s

I had a N57 engined 330d with manual gearbox and it was better on fuel then the G.
Which BMW did you have before?
I had a 120d with N47 and a remap. I had no issues with the chain and it would do 50-55mpg no trouble on a run.A remapped 118d with an N47 - the chain eater
Was turning out 42-45 ish on a run from London to Devon - every diesel we've owned has fit 50s minimum on that run even with My eager right foot
Honestly hoping the garage finds something amiss and the G can hit 50s or I'm in for some mega humble pie and 1.3 Mito 😅
