Can't help you for a diesel engine but my 2.5 petrol engine is getting about 8 km/l for city driving and about 10.5 for highway driving.
For the past few months, I've been using the car for commuting in heavy town traffic - a 5-1/2 mile journey takes 45 minutes +/-, there, and 30 minutes back. I'm seeing 300miles to a tankfull - that's nearer 25 mpg, still 8mpg better than my 1997 2.0L petrol Galaxy that I p/x'd for this excellent machine. :blink:As for fuel economy, I got (believe it or not) 42mpg for the first tankfull! - OK, I was very careful and ran it at 70(ish) for 300 of those miles, but I did have 3 adults and 3 boys on board!
I run my 2.9 crdi 2004 for my job as a chauffeur and i return generaly 35-37mpg at 80mph on the motorways.Iget 450-500 miles from a full tankOriginally posted by eco@Dec 27 2004, 03:15 PM
Hi. Im not partically frugal or economically minded but I can usually clear 30 MPG in my manual CRDI Sedona. In the two long distance runs I did measure it 4 up with all luggage for a holiday (To Switzerland and Nice) I was generally sitting at 3000 RPM / 85 ish MPH and I was getting 33 MPG with the air-con on. I have found sliding the roof bars to the back cuts down wind noise and that cleaning the rubber gasket between the bonnet and the intercooler made it make a better seal which must help also.
