Hi, Not sure if anyone else can shed some light on this but I've had the car for 2 months now and when I fill the tank to the brim, the trip is only ever displaying around 330 miles AVG when full, bearing in mind I drive the car in eco mode 99% of the time.

Is this generally what everybody else gets back from a full tank or do I have a problem on my hands? I used to own a Ford Kuga where a full tank of fuel would get me around 410-415 miles on average.

Thanks

Would have thought you should get a lot more miles on a tank, I can get that on my 43.

Hi Bradley and welcome to the forum. Give us a rough location in your profile so we know where in the world you live because U.S. gallons are smaller than 'proper' gallons. I filled my 2016 220d Sport Premium Plus to the brim at my last fill-up. I have currently done 402 miles and I'm being told the remaining range has been calculated to be 286 miles if I continue to get the 43.5 m.p.g. it has achieved so far on this tankful.

Correct regarding the US and UK gallons but as far as I am aware the miles are the same.

This might help discussions re Fuel injector cleaning and DPF cleaning.
There are a number of brands who cater for this cleaning, I have only listed two sellers, there are others of reputable standing.
One product allows cleaning of DPF when travelling slow, in suburban environment, without having to travel for 20 min at 80-100kph.
I have always used a fuel injector cleaner in all our petrol and diesel cars, maybe lucky, but never a problem and exhaust with diesels always clean.
Whenever going above the snow line overnight, if I have not filled up with Alpine diesel, I add a bottle of special “anti freezer,gel” to fuel, designed for diesel to save having to be towed off the mountain and wait for tank to warm up and defrost !!
