Probably 500 km/tank around town.

-Aren't you pleased you bought the diesel? They were as rare as hen's teeth when I was looking about 6 months ago. Petrol engine seemed a bit puny for a medium-sized SUV, and this is confirmed by reports of poor fuel consumption; around 20 MPG (Imp) mixed driving.

jealous that we can't get a turbo diesel on this side of the pond, I would kill for that kind of mileage on a fill up. How much hp does the turbo diesel produce?

Similar for my wife's. Slightly better economy with the ChipExpress than stock [only ~0.5L/100Km]. Bet the mileage is WAAAYYYYYY better than the Maloo.......

After 8000km I'm doing 600km with one tank. Not that bad, considering my foot is quite heavy (A/C ~150-200km/h, fast accelerations)
Driving 2.0 CRDi 135kw/184HP AWD Dynamax here.
