The fuel must be going somewhere. Is there excessive black smoke? The dpf(fap) system would seem the most likely culprit.
would love to get fuel consumption like yours - my dealer says nothing wrong with car & i must be driving it wrong yet my previous 3 cars all did around 50 to 53 mpg
dealer only driven car not examined it yet
much "blue" smoke on start up not black
