Unhappy scenic 1 fuel economy

this week picked up thru main dealer an immaculate scenic 1.6 fidji automatic. 02 reg 16,000 miles. all good except even with light right foot and only driver on board i seem to be averaging only mid 20's economy.

admittedly so far it has been quite a bit in town and air con on but still seems very poor. is this the norm or should i investigate. as i said i have only driven about 150 miles so far but any tips or advice would be appreciated.

my previous car was the new shape megane 2 litre sport hatch 6 speed which averaged almost 30 throughout my 50,000 mile ownership.

Welcome to the forum Tony.

Hopefully somebody will be along shortly with a specific comparison but to be going on with, my 2.0T *manual* Espace tends to average low 20's with the wife using it for the school run, shopping etc, even on a motorway journey I can't remember seeing more than late 20's.

Autos tend to be use a bit more juice than manuals.

I can't find the official figures for the Scenic I but I've just found something on the Scenic II 1.6 auto which shows urban at 25mpg, combined 35mpg.

Yep - beat me to it:

Urban - mpg (litres/100km) 26.4 (10.7)
Extra Urban - mpg (litres/100km) 44.1 (6.4)
Combined - mpg (litres/100km) 35.3 (8.0)

This is for the current incarnation of that engine, although it might actually be the same power plant as the 02 model

I'm averaging around 35 with the 2 litre Scenic (manual) and averaged about the same with the 2 litre auto. Thats about town mainly though with the odd run to the coast thrown in!
