Re: Scénic 15DCI 2010 28MPG ????

I read with interest, I Have a scenic 106 1.5 dci, we live in wales pretty rural so no congestion really, the car has covered 3000 miles, getting 44mpg average the best i have got it to is 50mpg at a steady 70 on the motorway, very disapointed, there is a huge low down flat spot that can catch you out at roundabouts and on some slopes make it a no no setting off without shrtening the life of the clutch. There is a couple of things I have noticed with car, the cam belt is too tight it whines when engine hot, when the car is cold and parked as the screen freezes there is hot spots on the window above the air vents, so i suspect the aux heater is not switching off, thease could both affect fuel economy, I am waiting for my update discs for clip, I will have a look and then go to dealer. Keep you informed.
