Re: Modus 1.5 dCi Fuel Consumption

I find that on a true "brim to brim" refuelling, my '57 plate Modus does up to 55mpg including short runs. This can be improved upon by very careful driving but the benefit of long runs is cancelled out if you exceed 65mph on motorways, so the aerodynamics and gearing clearly count against it. My car no longer has the original Continental tyres which I think were designed for economy - now runs on Avons and also has the full length sun roof which adds to the weight - so a return to those might help but I doubt it.
