That's been the bizarre thing though.

My first (1995 2.0 8v) Laguna I used to return 38mpg with little effort.
My second (1998 2.0 8v) Laguna I used to return 35mpg when driven with similar enthusiasm.
My third (2002 2.0 16v IDE ) Laguna II used to return 29mpg, again at much the same speeds and with much the same driving style.

I don't think the Lag II is significantly heavier than the Lag I (though I haven't checked to confirm) so I don't know where the fuel was going. If anything, I'd expect the more modern car and engine to be more economical.

Currently in Horatio's garage:
2010 Laguna III Initiale.
