My 2014 1.7d had averaged 55 MPG since new. On its last service May 2017 the dealer cleaned out the diesel injectors and for 6 months the fuel economy improved but for the last few months its getting worse i am struggling to get a average of 52 MPG

The computer tells me I am averaging just over 55mpg  from my 1.7 diesel  Techline 4x4, over 58,000 miles. However I do actually record in a book  each fuel transaction, (my wife thinks I am so sad) and manually work out  the exact mpg (litres x 0.22 = gallons. Divide miles travelled since last fill up by number of gallons.) That gives me a figure of just a shade over  50mpg when averaged out.
I'm really pleased with that, as I was expecting something much nearer to 46 mpg when I bought the car, five years ago this May.

My previous 1.7 diesel was also prone to underestimate how much fuel I'd used by 4-5 mpg. My new one though is always accurate so it seems Vauxhall finally fixed the fault. I would say 50mpg is a good return myself.my current petrol one only manages about 32.
