    Rag week !
    Or play times over ! .
    Any road up,I originally came from Mauritius. I don't know what that makes me , probably a complete dingodooflap.
    Tea , I like mine strong
    Coffee I like mine strong
    I suppose it all stems from when I was an alcoholic, don't know .
    I always remember my granny use to , tie used teabags to a tree in the garden , never knew what all that was about.
    Maybe so she could grow here own tea tree ?
    Anyway going back to the op's original query.
    You git to remember that's it's a computer, there are many factors in how it displays the current MPG / range thingy .
    Driving style ,
    Temperature of engine
    Load on engine
    Gear selection
    And also incline of car ( up,or down hill )
    It's puts all thease things in its brain and then gives out an average.
    My van is the worst the other night I had a range of 159 miles
    Tootling along then it shot up to a range of 210 miles because I was in top gear doing 50 mph
    MPG at one point was 39 MPG
    And at one pony going down hill I achieved 159 MPG .
    I would not get anal about the figures being displayed
    As it's only a computer and it's only an average
    But also the longer you drive it for on each trip then it's got a longer distance to work out an average, around town my wife average is 39 MPG on a long run it goes up to 56 MPG .if I reset everything it goes down to 15 MPG until you drive it a longer distance.
    If you think you are going to get the desired MPG as per manufacturer then you won't.
    On my other cars I can range between
    23 MPG on the 2.8
    25?on the GSI
    35 on the 1.9 tid
    I don't bother keeping a tab on them because in the end it's a computer.

    I concur with RBH, defo weather related Diesels always run colder, but ECU increases engine RPM when cold, hence lower MPG's
