As the temps have dropped over the last week or so have any of the members noticed a drop off in their fuel economy. I run a 2002 1.5dci extreme that usually averages 58-59 mpg on the trip. After filling up this week i reset the trip and now it reads 53-53.5 mpg.Do you think it could be winter diesel or something else.
The Fuel companies add an anti gelling compound to the diesel in the winter months to keep it from thickening or even freezing. This can mean your economy can deteriorate by up to 10%. Hope that helps.
