Over 15664 miles it has averaged 36.04 MPG - I filled it up today and wiped the computer but the average speed from recollection is a dismal 29 MPH :(

No inspiring figures there then although the MPG is steadily increasing - I normally would get 400 miles from a tankful but lately it has crept up to around 500.


Been using Torq diesel the past six months or more.

2003 C5 2L HDi 110.

307 1.6 HDi 110 - 53.2 MPG over 5.5k miles at average of about 35mph according to the computer. Computer economy seems a reasonable match for reality - 650 miles out of about 55 litres. Oh, and HMG only want £130 to tax it at the end of the month :-D

No photo, I reset mine after each fill-up. Data taken from a spreadsheet I keep.

2007 C5 II 2.0 HDi with 72k. Mixed driving, from motorway, country roads, city and quite a bit of stop-start heavily-laden runs to the tip. Climate control on for most of the time. not bad for a huge estate car, although running on V-Power has helped. Oh, it's a six-speed manual.

I reset MPG etc regularly and certainly before long trips otherwise info becomes a bit irrelevant. MPG is only of use to me over a single trip, a single tankful or in an unusual situation such as a full and heavy load. Unfortunately, the 173. 2.2 HDI is a thirsty beast. The mph shown is about as much as I usually retain for reference, and the figure is for a fully loaded and rapid motorway journey of 600 miles plus some urban miles.
