Modus 1.5 dCi Fuel Consumption
I recently changed our '51 Clio 1.5 dCi (65bhp) for an 06 Modus Maxim 1.5 dCi (86bhp). We find the Modus has very poor fuel consumption when compared to the Clio ie. on a motorway run at 70mph we regularly returned around 70mpg. Driving the Modus the same way we can only return around 58mpg. The round town consumption is also about the same. Does anyone have any ideas to improve the mpg?
The car is a one owner, regularly serviced and has done 55,000mls.
