I get 45MPG with mine on short journeys which is what I typically do - but on runs I can just about get 75MPG driving just a bit faster than a granny! (about 65mph average). Depending on what sort of driving you do, 60MPG is likely about right and about in line with the 20% less than manufacturer's figure rule of thumb.

My average is about 55mpg.

My best is 76.8mpg, that was a 22 mile journey driving a constant 50mph on an A Road at night.

Quite a few similar threads exist on this topic already from the past 2 years and more.

I can only get 28 mpg in my D2. The dpf is causing problems and the turbo is shot.

The good news is the climate control has now failed which has increased the mpg to 31.

I'm getting 54.2mpg having done some 1250 miles this is with climate control always on and driving 50-75 on a dual carriage motorway 20 miles each way - am reasonably pleased though as my 2.0 Astra over 37000 miles only got me 40.7!

@Kev, ah yes Kev, but if you up the tyre pressures to eco, you might even get up to 32mpg. :-)
