Re: espace 2.2 dci fuel consuption


I have also just bought a Grand Espace 2.2 dci Auto 2005.

On the first tank I got 27mpg with 50:50 urban motorway driving. I've just cleaned out the gunked up EGR valve and am running a tank of injector cleaner to see what happens. Computer says 23mpg after quarter tank but will see when it's fill up time (which could be far sooner than I like)

All my mpg figures are done with miles travelled/ litres used etc (handy iPhone app!)

So far pretty disappointed as my 1.9dci Trafic gives me a 680-700 miles per tank!

If one thing I'd like to know is if this is good or not for this car. Owners of Lags or any other car please refrain from quoting your mpgs as it's quite unhelpful. What would be interesting to know is if there are any owners that actually get the mpg figures quoted on Parkers etc.
