Unhappy Fuel consumption of a 2004 2.2dci Grand espace

Hi

After a total engine failure...great fun and almost a 14.000 pound bill, I got a spanking new engine in my beloved Espace. It is supposed to be equal to the engine it replaced.

The problem however is the fuel consumption. I have driven ~3000km, (2000miles), and the consumption is far higher than before.
I used to get 40 mpg / 7l/100km, now I am getting 25mpg/ 11L/100km

The workshop tells me that the new figures are normal.. I disagree...

What is normal, what are your numbers ?

Re: Fuel consumption of a 2004 2.2dci Grand espace

Oh yes, I forgot...
The last thing the garage told me..." perhaps it get better after 10.000 miles, when it run in..."
Can it be so ? I think they are only trying to "buy some time"

I see from Mikes post, that his Espace only had a moderately higher mpg as new.

Jeez!! With a 2.2 litre Lag2 I never got less than 29MPG while towing a Luna Clubman caravan.

Solo on a run I expected around 47+ Going to and from work in busy traffic 37-38MPG
