Can I improve my MPG from max of 33??? on my Scenic 1.9D D4X
I bought an 02 plate 4 wheel drive drive Scenic 1.9D about a month ago. I have done roughly 250 miles today about 50% on the motorway 25% country roads and 25% Town/City roads and it has only averaged 31.5mpg according to the computer.
I have to admit that has disappointed me as its used roughly £35 of Diesel to run from Chesterfield to Liverpool and then to East Mids airport and back to and from Chesterfield. No I am not a Taxi driver, Its all family stuff, lol
The car has got 91,000 miles on it and I am an average driver that goes roughly the speed limits and nothing daft over or below it!!
Can you give me any advice as to whether I should stop moaning about my MPG or whether something could be having a knock on effect to my low mpg???
Also I have noticed a few times first thing in the morning mainly when I change into 2nd gear for the first time it seems to lose its power and takes a couple of seconds to regain it, any thoughts or experience of this???
Apart from these 2 things I love my new car!!!
