    I've had my Insignia for six months and have covered 12,000 miles so far.??I'm pretty disappointed with MPG.??I have averaged 46 the whole time (ranging from 41-49), measured using an app where i enter mileage/litres/cost etc every fill.??



    I'd agree the dash MPG is overly optimistic it has almost always read between 48-52.



    The car had a full service before I bought it and i chuck redex in every month or two.?? Anyone any ideas how to improve this???I've toyed with a tuning box or remap (Scotland if anyone has any recommendations)



    Speak to Stan at Ecotune. Best tuner in Scotland IMO. He done mine over a year ago & it returns better economy on the rare occasion that I actually drive it for economy (I like being in boost ).

    I have a 2010 Sri CDTi auto that seemed a little thirsty. Heard good things about BG244 additive so thought I'd give it a go and what can I say??? It works!!
    My MPG has gone from 41.9 to 50.2 combined. Happy man

    BG244 is a fuel additive that cleans injectors, DPF, combustion chamber etc. Around £20 a tin but it treats 60 litres and only needed every 6 months / 10,000 miles

    I've seen a 10% improvement in mpg since the many months of dark, cold, wet weather went away. I haven't used any fuel additives nor made any changes.

    My daily commute is Plymouth to Exeter. I tend to drive between 65-70 and a tank will last around 5 days.

    Average fuel consumption is 36-37mpg according to the dash.

    Car is on over 100k now and serviced regularly. Would a re-map help?

    Iím considering changing the car to something a little lighter on fuel and quieter in the cabin.

    Iíve never known a car be let in so much road noise as the insignia.
