My 2002 Laguna has done 108,000 miles and averages out at 46 mpg. with a bit of work I can get up to 50mpg on a normal combined run, but I start getting a bit obsessive shouting at anyone who makes me apply the brakes.

On a recent trip from brighton to Manchester and back normal driving I averaged 52mpg. Bored many a dinner party guest with this.

Not sure if my car is the 105 or the 120 model. Anyone know how to find out?

In regards to mpg.
I've got an 03 1.9dci, usally get between 42-46 on a small motorway run (approx 25miles each way). Till I went to the south west last june. Went from Lincolnshire to Somerset, Torquay, Lands End over 3 days did 700miles on 1 tank. By the time I got to Taunton from home, the readout was 59.9mpg that was doing 70/75 along the way. After that only does top 40's.

I was getting the same approx3 2mpg during the week when i only travel 5 mile to work and then 5 mile back.
on a week end when i go further i can average about 45mpg. Motor way travel works out at about 50-70mpg at 70mph.

i was not happy with my milage at a short distance either so i purchased some magnets of ebay that go on your fuel pipes as close to the engine as possible and now insted of 32mpg i am getting 41mpg. I went a bit over board and added 6 pairs of magnets but it does say just add 2 pairs for diesels.

It has also improved my performance slightly as well.

The idea of fitting magnets to the fuel lines has been around for about 100 years or so. I wonder why manufacturers haven't fitted them yet. Better still maybe we should start a petition to get all public transport companies and haulage companies to fit them.
Better still every home heated by oil or gas should have them. That way we could reduce our energy bills drastically. Have we found the solution to global warming without realising it?
Strange thing though I have never seen independent figures or studies to prove the magnet theory even works
