Highest I've managed with my EcoDynamics CRDi is 72MPG on a long run, with cruise control at 65mph.

Most of the time though it's about 60-65MPG on general motorway/A-Road driving.

Hi, I have found that a light right foot is more economical than cruise control, I experimented on my last round trip to Spain

Finally got my pro_ceedyesterday, 1.6 CRDi high power. Took a 20mile run and managed 61.8Mpg this was on motorway where speed limits varied from 50-70MPh.

With Cruise Control, done on the return journey I got 59.7Mpg.

Since this is my first diesel, I'm happy!!

That a great return - due to my roads I rarely use cruise but still very happy with 50 avg over the nearly 5 yrs of ownership

Ok, I've had my Pro_Ceed for just over a week now, getting about 56-57Mpg which I think is pretty good, going by other posts here.

I decided to run a little test tonight, using mycartracks I recorded my speed and elevation changes.



I'm sure someone will find it useful :p This was 95% motorway (M9/M8)

Best I've managed in my '3' 113bhp Pro is 67mpg from Goole to Birmingham last weekend, but this was 50-55mph on the cruise control, once I picked it up to 70mph by the time I'd got to somerset that average had dropped to 57, which is still pretty good. I'm getting around 50mpg in my weekly runaround, which is OK but was kind of expecting 55 before I got the car, my 320td Compact used to manage 50 and that had a 150bhp 2.0

Hi. I bought a 09 2.0 Sport recently and although the mpg was recording at 55 the tank was not reflecting this.
£40 at 1.419 per litre is 28 litres, divided by 4.5 litres to a gallon, roughly 6, multiplied by 55mpg, equals 344 miles. I'm lucky to get 250. Anyway, discovered a Pro Bitz box under the bonnet! After some reading, on forums and the Pro bitz manual, it seems these boxes can cause false readings. Also the manual says that it's not great for motorway heavy drivers. So I'm going to turn the screw to less power, see if that improves the mpg. You can read manual here, http://www.pro-bitz.com/order/download.php

I have one fitted to my 1.6CRDI ceed and i can confirm your suspicions that it dose give a false reading of about 10 mpg extra.however i have tried to bring mine down by one notch.but on the open road when overtaking i lost power,not all and not limp home mode but enough to have to pull back and get a small fright.hope it helps,but i think you will miss it

Yeh you're probably right, but I'm spending 40 quid a week on diesel like it is, so it's proving quite costly. However, mpg is not helped when you have a tyre that's half inflated, as I've just discovered :-\
