Re: 1.5 dci or 1.9 dci engine which is best

I am now on my 3rd scenic a 57 reg 1.6vvt the previous two being a 06 reg 1.5dci and a 53 reg 1.9dci I went all the way to spain in the 1.9 4 people fully loaded and averaged 54 mpg but the 1.5 on long runs would only get about 46mpg.I always found the smaller engine had to be worked a bit more (also found this in a laguna 1.5dci I had that only averaged about 40mpg}I would think you be better off with the 1.9dci with that little bit my power in reserve
