Seems everyone is posting lifetime economy. I reset trip each fill and my commute always gives 41.5 to 42mpg over a tank.

I guess if my usage included the weekend local stuff I see it fall to about 39.

I normally just slap it in at 70mph in cruise on poverty fuel. If I'm early for a meeting then I've been known to drop it to 65 or 60mph when I'm on the phone and just want to chill out. Going through roadworks at 50mph like those on the M1 at Nottingham or near the M25 certainly helps too.

Was 24mpg after the remap, or were you getting slower in your old age

I too have the 330d auto, currently getting 27mpg per OBC which is ALL town driving in traffic for the last 1000 miles I have covered in it since I bought it.

The guy who owned it before me never reset the OBC and it was showing 34mpg, but I know he did much more motorway driving than me.

I assume you don't get to do many easy runs?

One example to show what these cars can do. Again 2006 model (E91 330d auto), so no ED features.

I tried a light drive home from Wltshire. Filled at Wootton Bassett with Shell Diesel and as conditions were still, about 10-degrees C, ideal to get a good daytime baseline result, 2 of us and a full boot. Was recording 45.5mpg when I joined the M5, set the CC at legal limit (75/76mph on the clock) and tried to keep to a smooth drive, no hard acceleration. As we joined the M6, 47mpg clicked over. I kept to the same regime wherever possible and I held 47mpg average for over 200 miles until north of Lancaster. Stopped at Tebay with 46.3mpg on the OBC.

We hit high winds in the borders and that bit into the mpg. Could see the swingometer dropping to 30/35 even on the flat whereas it had been 50 ish in the still conditions.

At Cumbernauld when I topped up to find the real consumption, was reading 44.8mpg for 374 miles. Brimmed figure was 44.94. So the 47mpg was pretty much spot on for an easy 70mph cruise. Not bad for a 330d auto touring.

Steady cruising and legal speeds do return good results.
