Hi as i stated i dont really boot my car around town and yes it does have a fuel computer that is where i am getting my figures from, currently averaging 32 to the gallon around town and my revs are pretty much kept between 1500 and say 2300rpm max mostly under that i was wondering if there may be some sort of mechanical issue.
Hi all was wondering if someone might be able to help just purchased an 06 plate 1.8TDCI Zetec and i don't feel I'm getting the fuel economy that i should be. Normal kind of driving around town which is what i do most of unfortunately i am getting between 32 and 33 to the gallon. I have done a couple of runs and seem to average around 45 to the gallon again with normalish motorway driving a little bit of 80 to 85 mph but mostly around 65 to 70mph i have spoken to a mechanic and all he told me was to check the air filter. To try and improve economy i have tried putting redex diesel additive in to my fuel and running on Shell V Power Diesel but with no effect i must say when driving round town i am literally like an old lady no high revs, or thrashing revs kept between 1 and 2000rpm any ideas.
