Currently running about 26-27mpg, that's mostly short trips though. Got up to 30-32mpg on last long trip....Does seem marginally more economical since 90D7 recall.

I do motorway only to and from work (i.e 20 miles each way) and get 25-26mpg. standard Diesel from Sainsburys.

Long journeys - yes it does go up to 29-30 mpg but that is very rare.

I do 70 motorway miles per day and mostly cruise at 65-70 ( honestly )

Currently getting 27-28, upto 30-31 on longer runs, but that seems to be on trips that are 100miles plus by which point i have usually reached the local town i'm travelling to dropping the consumption back to 27-28! bummer.

Getting about 650mls from a tank on average.

I have have had my 3.0 TDI for 11 months and 10,000 miles now and the avaerage over that time is 25.6mpg- not bad for saying I drive it like a GTI

On a round trip of 500 miles to Wales to our caravan (including lots of overtaking) I get 28mpg but the 2 miles into town during the week to pick up my good lady from te shops kills my MPG so it could be better- thing is- I have a Jag as well but the Terg is much much more fun - I burned off a Range Rover Sport 4.2 SC at the lights last week (he was not trying or he knew I had more torques)
I love it...

Trip computer says 27mpg round town but a brim test reveals 25. Long run 200 miles to South Wales on Motorway & A roads shows 30mpg on computer but closer to 28 on brim test. Only 6600 miles since March & getting better all the time. Would only do 25 on a long run when I first got her. A/C nearly always on, brisk driving but not being silly...

3500 miles and so far averaging about 28 around the doors and 31+ on longer runs. Reasonably happy with that

Ouch, that was dear. I got up to ?94 filling the tank (range said 50 miles to go) the other day. That was ?1.12 I think - how much did you pay?

Car said 15 miles left in tank - 97.33 ltrs at ?1.049/litre at local Esso garage (joint cheapest in area apparently).

I lied, total was ?102.10.

Ouch :shock:

I always stop on the click, mind. Only because I don't have the patience to stand there packing it in until I can see it in the neck of the filler. La Wurzelina can't stand it either because she can't leave the odd pennies on the pump; she has to round it off!

Before i had the car chipped i was averaging probably 25-27mpg then i had a chip fitted which made immediate improvement to both tork and mpg.

However whilst the engine was fine the gearbox change became aggressive so i had the chip removed and the engine re-mapped. I now have a great drive and trip computer shows just under 31mpg average consumption or around 500 miles to a tank. considering most of my driving is local / around London that will do for me.

That's not bad at all - what remap did you choose?
