"just to compare" to this preconceived notion you have that the reading isn't right? It does get 60mpg, easily. It's been worked out. My dad worked it out when he had the car. I'm sure, also, if it wasn't getting 60mpg, and was running empty after 400 miles, my uncle would be very dubious about the readings.
What makes you think that what your app tells you is any more accurate than the onboard trip, though? It's vulnerable to the same error as the trip is.
No offence intended there. I just don't trust the mpg readings on cars in general like you don't trust supermarket diesel. Btw, I would never again use supermarket diesel from previous experience. Very poor fuel economy and car needed a service earlier than scheduled due to it "kangarooing".
As for the 2L Duratorq engine, I now feel as if I chose the wrong engine as I thought the 1.6tdci would be more fuel efficient, Then again, at the time I couldn't afford anything else.
