hey u lot, i have a mk3 2ltr tdci mondeo ghia x which i bought mainly to try save on fuel but i cant seem to get my mpg to budge from 36 no matter how steady or how hard i drive. Im sure im doin more than that although my maths is rubbish but its always backof my mind and bugging me.

Any ideas?

thanks craig

should be a bit better than that,mines a tdci 130 est and i get 46 round town and 55-60 on a longer run all according to the trip computer though but it is pretty accurate.
fill the tank to the absalute top of the filler neck,zero the trip/miles,drive it for at least half a tank,re-fill to the same level note the liters of fuel needed to re-fill it and note the miles done and do the maths..

Do you have a hole in the tank....? :unsure:

My old MK3 2 litre showed 46 as a general rule running about. Never had it showing less than 42mpg. On a motorway I could get it up to around the mid fifties.

My new MK4 1.8TDCi has yet to show more than 35 running around locally, although it has only just reached 1000 miles, so I'm hoping that it will improve when it loosens up a bit. (I also hope the flat spot below 1600rpm will go away as well before someone runs into the back of me......!).
