Hello! Laguna II 2.2dci fuel economy?!
Hi all, newbie here and to the world of Renault ownership. 1 week ago I bought an 04 plate Laguna 2.2 DCi Dynamique (66k miles) to replace my dying Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD.
On the alfa I averaged 42mpg and was hoping for the same or better from the Laguna. However, I am getting a pretty constant 34 mpg driving to and from work (18 miles each way). I am not hammering it, keeping it fairly steady with revs around 2000-3000. Really not impressed if this is the best I will get!
There is no black smoke and no hesitation or anything odd, just poor (in my eyes) economy.
Is this to be expected or should it be higher?
