I'd guess the reason for diesels taking a longer period to fully loosen up is diesel is more of a lubricant than petrol.

Also if you are getting 38 MPG you're not doing to bad if this knocking about, my current MPG is 40.9 over the last 3 fill ups but this includes holiday mileage and the kids being currently off school, normally I'd be getting around 35 ish MPG which includes to and from work in traffic

BTW if the OBC is reset on M/ways and off peak, I would be expecting 50-54 MPG
