Re: scenic expression 1.6 auto 04 mpg ?

Your 26 mpg figure sounds much more like it. 50 mpg would only be obtainable from a manual diesel.
The seller's optimism reminds me of the days when I drove a Discovery II V8. Those who drove the much more common Td5 maintained that they would do 35 mpg with ease, but when I had one as a loan car, I got about 18 mpg out of it - barely more than the much more muscular and better-sounding V8.
