    60mpg is more like the normal for the 1.7DTi Eco4 model, which has different tyres, gearbox, under-car aerodynamics.

    Also really depends on your driving style, and type of driving you do. I get 55mpg in my 2.0DTi if I'm doing a long A-road or motorway stint at a constant 65-75mph. I usually get 42mpg as I spend a fair amount of time in the city doing short stops and starts, even though in the city I rarely go over 2000rpm.

    had between 580 and 640 miles from a full tank, varying driving styles (missus drives my car like a grandma coz its too big for her ) and different length runs.. not sure what mpg this is as i've never looked into tank capacity - as long as i don't have to put £30 in a week like my old 206 then I'm happy
