08 Megane DCI 106 MPG?
My missus bought an 08 Megane 1.5 DCi (106) for 2 reasons, first was the dealer told her the road tax was £35 a year, secondly the lure of 50+mpg.
When she got the car in March the road tax was £120.... massive dealer faux pas, they didnt even know the addition of the sunroof takes the car into the next tax bracket! anyway we got that sorted and reimbursed to the tune of 2 years free servicing.
MPG however, she's only getting around 42mpg combined, i realise the engine is still new at about 1200 mile on the clock but the dealer has told her not to expect any more than that. I never take much notice of what the manufacturer states for MPG because its nearly always wrong, but Renault say combined of 62.5mpg so i'd expect somewhere in the region of mid 50's. Her 05 1.9DCi got 43mpg round the town! My 57 2.0 TDCI Mondeo gets 45mpg combined (engine is still relatively new on that too, <6000 mile) and thats a huge heavy car!
Anyone care to comment on what their 1.5 (106) is getting?
