One of those piece of string questions ....what sort of usage, town or motorway, speeds, heavy footed, loaded ?

I'd say from 35 up to 45 mpg with a probable 43 average. Don't expect more as you won't get it.

The Government/DVLA figures for your vehicle in an 'ideal world' are:-
Urban 32
Extra 49
Combined 41

I actually have had 48 mpg from my 1.9D but it is too boring getting it hence my saying up to 45 mpg which I get as my normal average consumption figure.

The figures for my van are 42, 60, 52 respectively.
I would say realistically mine is 38, 58, 47.
Although at present struggling to keep my combined at 47, it has dropped to 46, as you can see from my 'Fuelly' logo at the bottom of my posts.
Been using http://www.fuelly.com for 13months & 12,500miles with a 65%/35% urban/extra split, so pretty accurate figures for MY driving in MY van.
Other people, of course, will have different figures for the same vehicle.

So Gov.uk are pretty much spot on with their quoted figure of 49, when you are getting 48.
I don't think fuel economy is boring; it's becoming more and more necessary with fuel prices as they are today.
I find it quite challenging to see how many mpg I can get.
And I work on a road legal race car that does 8 mpg on a good day! Confusedillyme:

For me,the economy driving bit can become addictive, When I go to Germany each year I TRY to beat last years record but if I don't watch myself,it overtakes the fun of the trip.I tend to average up to 10MPG less on Autobahns than on our motorways.I now use the A roads as much as possible & this saves a lot more.Better scenery makes for a better,more relaxed,driving experience.I get nearer 60 MPG & find cheaper fuel into the bargain.With 1 overnight stop each way it's doable.:thumbsup:

You are correct it is necessary to get good fuel economy and I also find it a challenge to get as much mpg as possible but to have to do it all the time chasing every 0.01 mpg day in day out is indeed boring.
After leaving the house at 05:50 hrs to work all day and then drive home to arrive at 20:00 hrs doesn't leave much joy in me to be challenged.
If I can average 45 mpg in such circumstances I'll be happy with that.
