    Just got back from France and I may have a problem with Bessie's engine. I collated the MPG over 5 brim to brim fill ups, the first being with premium diesel the others with ordinary

    1st did 30.42 mpg
    2nd did 23.86 mpg
    3rd did 22.58 mpg
    4th did 21.16 mpg

    Now you can see it's getting steadily worse and a massive difference from 1st to 2nd fill ups! was that due to premium diesel I wonder? Or coincidence?

    Anyway to be sure I have booked the van in for a diagnostic check as there are threads around about known EGR valve and injector problems causing bad mpg. The 2.2 is a Ford engine so can't blame Fiat for this one.

    Why not try some more premium diesel. If it gives a 25% improvement it a bargain.

    maybe you were going downhill for the first tank
    then started climbing and then the headwind got stronger:Doh:

    naa seriously i get on average 20-21.5 mpg with my 3 litre.
    but the type of roads do make a difference to it.
    as expected i get more on motorways than on the a/b roads and hills well thats another story
    added to the fact i have quite a heavy right foot and the van weighs nearly 5 ton i don't think its too bad though i may try premium next time i fill up if im feeling flush just to see if i get any improvement:thumb:

    The 2.2 is a Ford engine so can't blame Fiat for this one.

    When did they start with ford engines, always thought 2.2 was peugeot.
    Do you know what ford it is or is it special to fiat

    On that basis, in a couple of months a full tank will take you nowhere. I think at that point I would consider selling it. :Cool:
