what are the true mpg figures for a 2.0 TDCi Mondeo? (2003+)
and what do people actually get?
Think ford claim combined of 47.8

Carlos,

I have an 04 2.0 TDCi, 115PS, which I run as a company car, and do a lot of miles so I can give a fairly accurate number. Last month I took a trip through Wales and the Midlands, 1500 miles in total, motorway, A road and B road, not much city driving. I brimmed the tank before I left, and when I came back: 55 mpg (better than the trip computer figure of 47 mpg). Obviously urban driving and having the aircon on would drive that figure down significantly. 48 mpg is very achievable.

Dave

Mine is around 45 - 46, over all conditions. My trip computer is always overstated and I never trust it. Usually gives out 4 -5 mpg more than actual.

Depends how you drive, how fast you drive, road surface, journey distance, starts and stops so everyones true mpg will be different!
