Re: Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Engines - Average MPG from 1.9 DCi Engine

I bought my 2004 Laguna II 1.9dCI on Fri 13th and after a week of going to work and back, a journey of around 60 miles each way my MPG works out at 49.1

The car had been unused since around Feb 2012 (When the last MOT & Tax expired) so I wasn't expecting too much. I filled the tank at Tesco because in my previous two cars, tesco fuel returned similar mpg as shell & BP and a lot more than Marrisons or Sainsburys.

On my runs to and from work which is about 95% mortorway I set the cruise control at 72mph (this is really 70mph according to my SatNav). At the next fill I entered the details into my fuel consumption spreadsheet which calculated the final MPG. The on board computer returned 47.8 mpg.

Details were....

Miles Travelled = 472
Liters purchased = 43.78 (9.63 Gallons)
