50 mpg! Multivan advertised on ebay, unmodified and achieves this. Hmmm, wonder if theres any truth in that?

Currently get about high 30's low 40's out of mine.

From what I have read around here, 50mpg is only achieved through a donor engine... such as the 1.9TDi that people often do.

The best run I have ever had is 699miles to a tank, 80litres, roughly 17gallons? Thats 41MPG. (Using DR)!

a tank is not 80 liters, you can get a damn sight more in there.

Brim to Empty is about 100liters on mine.

My Multivan is pretty good and is bog standard. The best I have ever had from a tank is 43.4 mpg over two weeks of commuting and being very careful.

I reckon with good conditions on a one off run I could improve on that, but for general running you are going to get 40mpg...so is likely to be a mis type on his part.

I thought the very same and initially wondered if it had an engine transplant but alas no.

The seller is obviously a fibber Y:
