Hi.

Recently bought an old (L reg) 300 TDi auto, 128,000 miles on the clock. It goes well but sounds a bit noisy and don't know if it is running as well as it should. I was wondering what I should get to the gallon. Over the last 1000 miles I have averaged 27 mpg, that would be town driving and a few long runs. How does that compare with an engine in good nick?

Just to echo what the others have said I also get about 27-33 to the gallon from mine depending on the type of driving i do.

Mine is now non EDC but with a tweeked mechanical pump and if anything I get slightly better consumption since the change.

HTH

OK folks, thanks for your replies. I seem to be doing about average I guess, so I don't suppose there can be too much wrong with my engine. . I must admit I tend to use kick-down quite a bit (novelty of having an auto I guess), so maybe I will achieve better with a lighter foot in the future.

Cheers.

Hi Mikey,

My 300 TDi Auto (non EDC) with 112500 miles on the odo, in town peak traffic, that is crawiling and stationary most of the time at 4 milles to work, returns 23 mpg. Open road at 75 mph with travel distances of 220 miles, which includes driving through villages returns 30 mpg. Both trips includes the use of the air conditioning system. Your discovery's average sounds good to me, taking into consideration the mass of the Discovery, the fact that the vehicle is in permanent four wheel drive and not one of the best in terms of aerodynamics.

Regards

Thys
