Just as a point. Mpg has lifted to a constant 44.8 now. This m.ways at 80, I have not reset the trip computer for 1400miles now.

I surpose this is pretty good.


Hi Bobby
At that speed on motorway cruising I have returned 53.0mpg and 56.0mpg.
The sort of mileage you are getting is what I would expect from semi-urban i.e.dual-carriageways.
Try this mate.
Next time you fill up use shell or other good quality diesel not supermarket (it seems to make a difference)and reset your counter before you leave the fore-court.
On a full tank you should notice getting on for another 50mpg nearly !!
Dont ask me why It just does and unless you try it you will never know .
Something to do with cetane levels I believe .
Webcode or Laguna II owner may be able to define this better .
Good luck!
