Driving around town the mpg is fine, about 55mpg. However on the motorway at legal speeds, driving carfully. tyres correct pressure, windows shut, A/C off etc. etc I get about 52mpg. I would expect to be getting over 60mpg in these situations. Does anyone else with a Renault with this engine experience the same?
By the way the local dealer have checked it out and say's all is fine. Is there a fault with the car that I can get the dealer to attend to at the next service?
are you calculating the mpg or using the cars computer?
