It may well be that there was a faulty glow plug but yours is a compression ignition engine and the glow plugs are not spark plugs in a petrol engine. I would not expect to see a difference in mpg on that. More probable would have been a reprogramming of the injection system. Was this mentioned?
Thanks for the pointer sans prix .
Nothing was even mentioned to me about a reprogramming of the injection system .Should this have been done then to try to cure the problem ?
It was not even offered me as a solution.!!!!

I know this is a poll for the 1.9 dci but we have started running a 1.6 vvt scenic and a mixture of A roads and motorways for about 100 miles have yielded a 43.5mpg average so the DCi should be alot better.

I plan to keep the Renault for couple of years but next time I do my homework on my next car i will be looking at the MPG on the younger Renaults on this site and others and if they are still not much better then other makes I may choose a VW again.
As you say that isn't really a fair comparison as the Laguna is bigger than a golf. For a better comparison you need to compare the golf with a Megane. A better comparison for VW v Reanault for a Laguna would be a Passat.

I run my cars exclusively on Shell and (when I can't find Shell) BP - not because I think they're any better, but because price is irrelevant to me (I have a company fuel card) and I'm a member of both of their loyalty schemes I can't vouch for the part tank that it was delivered with, but apart from that, this car has had nothing but Shell so far.

If I ran it on the cheap supermarket stuff, I'd probably be getting lower MPG's than my old IDE

I nearly always use ESSO with the odd tank of Shell. It might be the fact that mine is "used" to ESSO but it always seems a bit quieter and slightly more economical when I use ESSO. That said when I use FRench "supermarket" fuel when we go to France I never notice any difference apart from the fact it only costs me 45 to fill up insted of 60!
