Re: Replace anything with "Lucas" written on it
Funny, my turbodiesel Mondeo gives me a consistent 36MPG in France, but usually over 40 in the UK. I generally put it down to the lower M-way speedlimits
Is it broken? My turbo diesel Mondeo returns around 55MPG both in the UK and France. City/rural roads it returns around 54-55MPG and on motorway runs as high as 65MPG, that's driving to the speed limits, not dawdling around.
The only time I get down to 36MPG is when I'm towing my 26ft long twin axle caravan.
If you're only getting mid 30's to 40MPG you need to look at the way you're driving it. Its not a petrol so you want to be changing gear much earlier and using the low down torque of the motor. Cruise in a gear that keeps you around 2000RPM and back off earlier approaching junctions and traffic lights.
