    You don't mention what you think is poor mpg but if it really is poor, there are many possible reasons.

    Stop-start driving (i.e. accelerating and braking) is bad for mpg. Also the DPF can drink fuel if it's frequently trying to regenerate in town traffic.

    Sitting in L3 on the motorway at 80 isn't great for mpg either.

    Cold wet weather is bad for mpg, as is the associated running of all the electrics (lights, wipers, heated seats, blowers, aircon-demisters).

    And don't forget Insignias are very heavy and in general the heavier the car the more fuel it needs to move it about.

    Or maybe there is something wrong with your car.

    I get around 40 mpg with my 163 auto mixed driving low/mid 50s motorway. so not far off. But not all that bothered just fill up and go.

    PS 30 to 32 mpg towing my tin tent

    Yeah give it a reset mate. If I go on a motorway run and donít reset it it shows 48odd. If I reset it itíll show 56 ish. It judges the mpg over the miles stored on the display when you reset it resets everything and judges over the current mileage if that makes sense
