Fuel Consumption problem?
I'm new to the forums so I hope I'm posting this in the right place?!
I bought my Megane Scenic a few months back as my girlfriend is pregnant and we needed a 'family' car and it has a mahoosive boot for all her crap
Its my first diesel car and lately, when I start it up, it absolutely stinks of fuel! Is that normal? Its an '07 Megane Scenic 1.5dCi Dynamique (106 I think without looking).
My main query is about the fuel consumption though. It has been around the 49mpg (rising to up to 54mpg on a run) for the first 3 fill ups. I know its starting to get colder now as winter approaches but is it normal for me to now only get around 34mpg? It just won't budge and I can't afford to wait until it gets warmer to see if its the colder weather that is causing it. I don't rag it about either before you ask!
I've already had it back to the dealership because it told me a service was due even though the previous day it said I had over 13000 miles to go (!)
Any help is appreciated!
