    2.2 Diesel manual MPG

    Hi,

    What is the normal MPG for the 2.2 Diesel?

    I have seen people getting in the 30s for around town and claiming as high as 60 on the motorway.

    Mine does around 35mpg around town, and gets around 42mpg cruising at 70mph for long periods (i.e. 100+ miles) otherwise it drops back into the 30s. In summer I got 45 on same motorway journies and achieved 47mpg once going to and from Scotland. Is this normal?

    (No dragging brakes by the way!)

    Yes, that's in the right ball park.
    I'm always amazed by some of the claims of 60+mpg.
    Never seen it myself and I've driven hundreds of these cars.

    55mpg on a longish run (up to 70mph) and in the 40s in mixed town and dual carriageway driving.

    I was getting 58 on my last run, but that included 22 miles of 50 mile an hour on the M27 due to Smart Motorway upgrades. Usually lower due to a heavy right foot.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the replies. I'm guessing based on the location of those with good mpg, that you have quite free rolling roads and aren't doing much city stop start (mostly stopped) driving?

    As mentioned I have not seen beyond 47mpg and that's on a 600 mile round trip cruising at 70mph.

    By contrast my old Mondeo mk3 2.0 TDCi would return no less than 46mpg and often hovered around 50mpg (give or take 2mpg). I was hoping that my 2.2 in the Jaguar would at least stay in the 40-50 range.

    Thanks,

    Yet more proof it isn't just a Mondeo

    The 2.0L always was more economical.

    I have the 2.2d. General around town driving I'd expect to see circa 35mpg. The little bit of motorway driving I do will see that rise to around 45mpg. I do an unregular run to Bristol and another to Cornwall. Sat on the motorway at a steady 70mph with the cruise control engaged will give over 60mpg. I had all four tyres up to 40psi for one of the long runs once which gave over 65mpg. Noisy as hell though so I'm back down to 34psi now.

    Best I can get on a motorway is around 48mpg - thats sat at 75mph on cruise. Town driving I can't even get 30mpg

    My stepdad had an 04 2.0, he was averaging 47mpg and could get 60+ on a motorway run.
