GBMUD Posted August 10, 2007 Share Posted August 10, 2007 I have had the Td5 110 for a couple of weeks now and have done over 1000 miles. In that time I have measured the fuel economy over 2 tanks of fuel, one was mostly motorway driving from Wiltshire to Cambridge and then down to Sussex and I got 29.9mpg. The second tank was a good (typical?) mix of A-roads, motorways and urban driving with a couple of green-lanes thrown in too and I got (just) 32mpg. There are no chips or other mods to mine. When Td5s first came out there was a lot of grumbling from folk who were getting mid 20s or even less. Mine is getting loads more per gallon than my Tdi 90 which does mid 20s or 30odd if I drive like a saint. I think the best ever was 32mpg, and the worst I ever recorded was 17mpg - on the A303. During our trip to the Pyrenees this spring JST managed 36mpg on one tank in his Td5 90 with a chip and overdrive (and BFG muds) - although he was driving very sensibly following me and Mo Murphy at about 60 on SuperDiesel on French autoroutes. That is the best I know about. The worst? TJ101 and Mark90 getting 7mpg while greenlaneing in Wales. So, what I would like to know is what engine do you have, what mpg do you get typically and what is your best/worst ever recorded? Especially keen to hear from '07 MY owners. Real answers only please, not "well, the fuel gauge went down half a tank and I did 300 miles so that means 45mpg - but the second half of the tank only did 12mpg." Proper measurement only please!
