There seems to be a big difference in fuel economy between the 1.5 and 1.9. Our 1.9 won't get close to the 50-55mpg reported by the 1.5 owners on here. We're getting about 39 around town and 42-45 on a run, with an average on the computer at the moment of 40.2
Still not bad for a big old tank that can shift if you need it to, but my old Mondeo diesel which wasn't much lighter could easily achieve 50 with an engine designed when a bloke called Noah was thinking about building a big boat....
Mind you, no comparison on refinement or grunt.
