Hi, I am a new owner of Asta J 1.6 CDTI ecoflex sports tourer (MY 2015) 109K miles. Driving style is quite moderate, I try and keep revs below 2K

When I first had the car I was getting fairly good economy (low to mid 50s) , but now I am lucky if I get mid 30s. This is calculated MPG, not displayed, displayed is early 40s. Basically £20 only gives me about 108 miles.

I have had a full service done on the car, the fuel filter was quite bad and one of the rear brakes was binding a little, but since the service nothing has improved.

Has anyone else experienced this problem, or has anyone got any idea what the cause may be?

Richard

I've the same engine. I'm getting about 55mpg on a run and about 39/42 mpg round the doors. Have you thought about a carbon clean? I had my previous car done and noticed the mpg went up by 4/5 mpg and the performance aswell maybe something to think about.

Get someone who knows what his doing, to check live data, check your inlet manifold and egr side... This engine is notorious for clogged inlet.

Ps going low revs under 2k is not going to help mpg on a diesel but severe under revving creates all sorts of things stuck or clogged... Do not drive under minimum rpm that provides the specs torque...
