Been 5 or so month with the Sportback and Im a now pleased with the MPG and performance from the 1.6D.
Just yesterday short term average 1 over an 87 mile trip returned 58.9mpg. Up the A1 which was mixed motor way under cruise control at 70mph some 60mph and some 50mph.
I recently turned to ultimate Diesel and would say I get an extra 50mile to the tank? last tank full gave me 470mile, with a long term average of 54.1mpg that being over 934miles. I always drive under Dynamic.
Diesel ultimate definitely gives a bit more poke to the throttle and increased mpg, as to whether it pays for itself im not sure. Im not too bothered as I have a fuel card.
On occasions after say an enforced 50mph section of the A1 Gateshead Bypass I get 63mpg on the flat. This soon goes when national speed limit sign comes back.
How are you 1.6D doing?
