Got the T4 2.5TDI,88BHP swb model on an 02 plate!
full tank of diesel,635mls and on bar before red marker
So maybe another 30-40mls on that
Roughly works out 38-40mpg:

Well impressed.

Well done sounds like a good trip, use cooking oil cheap as chips and smells like it too

Unhappy Re: what mpg to expect?

I Will Cheer you 1.9D boys up. I have a 2.4D AAB fitted with an aftermarket turbo From TB of Lancaster in my LWB Reimo Camper. I average 23-24 Mpg. If you think that is bad When I tow my Folding Camper I get 18 MPG.Has any one else have similar horror stories? Just to put into perspective I can not get from Buckinghamshire to Cornwall on one tank of Fuel.

I have a 05 t28 130 92343 miles, and have never had it below 39.7! best I've ever had was loaded up with bikes and camping kit for 10 mates on a long trip and it still did 43.9!! needless to say I'm pretty chuffed with it!

I think I'm going to have to look at what I've got under the bonnet. I got my 1997 1.9TD 800 Special with 221k on the clock a couple of weeks ago and didn't really drive it anywhere till yesterday. I thought as I had over 100 miles round trip it would be a good time to see what it would get. These are my figures which sound a little unlikely but my maths seems to be OK.

I filled the tank to the brim before I started. I drove 108.5 miles round trip mostly on motorways but not being at all careful of economy. I kept getting a heavy right foot and having to slow back down to the limit (I was keeping up rather than driving like I should ) I was running totally empty for this run.
At the end of my journey I refilled to the brim and only got 10 litres in (it was even the same pump I used and kept trying to force more in).
This equates to 10.8 miles per litre or 49 miles per gallon.

I'll keep an eye on it and report back if the figures change much but I'm pretty happy so far

All I can think of for the high figures is that the guy I bought it from has done something like getting it tuned at some point which is still working well for me. Are there any easy to see signs of this having been done?
