I have to say what a great car the D3 is. Powerful Capable and Comfortable. I am getting 35 mpg reported on my TDV6. Is that about average ?

35mpg....Is that about average ? I think you must have a special motor there Whistle

I have never had more than 21-22 out of mine, That would be driving in a funeral convoy.

think the fbh is drinking it Whistle

has been better since blanking the egrs and cleaning the map sensor

but when i get it out on the motorway , summer or winter i will get around 28mpg

alas can’t change my display

just around town in the winter time it likes to drink abit more , brakes are all ok and not binding , done a full service to it last year, so can’t think of anything else i could try , but to be honest we don’t buy them for fuel economy Laughing
