1.9dci 120 tourer, 05 reg, nearly 68k miles. MPG varies depending on type of trips but I zero the computer every fill and my worst tank was 47 and my best tank has been 53mpg on the computer. I sometimes work it out manually - I use litres x 0.22 rather than litres/4.546 to convert to gallons 'cos its easier to do in your head. The manual version is usually 1 to 2 mpg better than the computer.
At the end of the day... ..it gets dark

i have had my car nearly 2 months and in that time i have averaged 44-45 mpg thats with long motorway driving and bombing around town, which i dont think is too bad as my old 306 DTurbo was averaging about 28-30 after a stage 1 tune

1.9 dci, drove from Nottingham to Harrogate (including time getting outside of Nottingham from where I live) and got 63.6 MPG, I couldn't believe it, but I tried VERY hard for that. It was a very boring drive and with climate control off.

I gave my rear brakes a good clean - think they may have been slightly binding - and got 36mpg from a couple of tanks. I have now dropped back down to about 30mpg. I know we are heading into winter and my lights are almost always on etc., but I do very little urban driving - mostly A-roads at speed limit (av speed over a tank 43mph). Surely I should be getting better than this?!

Over the last 1,700 miles, the computer tells me that I'm getting 34mpg at an average speed of 24mph. I have my second annual service coming up in December so hopefully my mpg will be improved. I would hope for a better mpg if my average speed had been over 40mph.

1.6 16v VVT and I get aroung 30mpg urban and about 35mpg on the motorway. It must be said though that I d have a fairly heavy right foot although I'd expected better.

I've just had that godawful camshaft dephaser pulley replaced so I'm hoping for better going forwards.

I can get 50-55mpg out of my 1.9dci 120 but i tend to be watching the computer all the time so i settle for around 45ish on a run 37-40ish short local runs.

That's about what my 2.0dCi Laguna Sport Tourer is doing.

I'm already missing the economy of my old Megane :(
