It's variable. I get less than 30mpg on short trips around town. (I do live in a very hilly area though, which will affect the economy).
On my work trip ( 35 miles mixed motoring ) I get around 45mpg at max 70mph. I have had up to 55mpg at those speeds, but not recently.
On long journeys I can get 65mpg if I drive like a granny and stay around 55-60mph.
Over the last year the economy has got worse by about 5-10mpg, but the dealer says the car is fine.
It's an 06 model TDCi Zetec.
The engine itself is a great motorway cruiser, and great at climbing hills. Very, very noisy while it's cold though, and sounds very diesel like in low speed motoring, unlike the 1.6 and 2.0 models.
