Just done my first decent run. Got 31.9 over 220 (kent to southampton and back). To be fair was stuck in traffic both ways, so i need a real clear run to confirm. At xmas i have a run from kent to inverness. Should sort the men from the boys !
Just did my first decent trip - S. M/C - Gloucester - Bracknell - Harpenden - Derby - S M/C
About 500 miles with all ranges of traffic and I got around 27.5 for 2.5 auto.
Looks like the current range for a full tank is around 600 - 650 miles which is in the mpg range of 27-29 as well.
At current diesel prices that's around 16 / 17p per mile.
I don't do vast amounts of miles but driving to local shops,stop/start I get 25.
On a run with a mixture of stop/start/motorway,carriageway ,over say 400 miles ,I average 32.
I'm never really in too much of a hurry.
2.5 tdi auto
Had the car 15 months now so this is probably how it is for me.
I am usually wearing my lead boots so 26 is average but looking at the v10 thread mayby I should have bought one not much diference cant belive the figures on there basicaly two 2.5's together ? maby not so good with lead boots
Had ours since april and done 10,000, average is 29.7 according to the dashboard computer, a mixture of wife driving (slowly) and me driving with a heavier foot and 50/50 countryside and motorway for the daily work run (70 mile round trip).
My Astra VXR averages 32 mpg on similar routes and I dont drive it slowly
