    Mines going at the end of contract far to thirsty for a modern diesel car 34 mpg is totally rubbish.

    Conno is that 34 in a manual? If so that's shocking. I expect it to be worse in an auto about town but 34 from a manual is just stupid and shouldn't happen in a modern car!

    I use V-Power in mine.

    Used it in my previous SRi CDTi too. I think I got slight less mileage day to day, but it seemed to do dpf regens less often so probably worked out better overall.

    I have previously had several bad experiences using supermarket fuels, so I avoid them.

    Pity, because I could sure make use of the 10p/litre vouchers that the local Morrisons are dishing out on the weekly shopping run. />

    Tell me about it. It must be something to do with these software updates. Before they started messing about with it I was averaging 37-38 around town. Now its just pish! And I'm driving it like Miss Daisy. Think I'll just rip the arse out of it as it can't go any lower, or can it?

    Ps I'm going into dealers tomorrow as they wanted to know if it was running better. It is but not in mpg terms!
