I've been tracking the mileage on our '03 TDCi wagon (115hp) over the last
37'000 km since we bought it. We definitely have very mixed driving
(commute to work, city driving, 140kph motorway on weekends, cold winters,
snow etc.). It has *averaged* a real-world 5.7 l/100km. This is based on
km driven and litres filled, not the overly-optimistic onboard computer

Can't complain at all, as I flog the thing repeatedly.
