SG read 900km / 36.7l / 4.0LHK so pretty much bang on.

Colder temperatures mean the inexorable decline of FE, at least the car will be getting new Nokian R2 LRR winter tyres so may make a difference.

Full grill block to be re-instated, along with some insulation for the motor at the weekend.

SG a little off at 3.7l/100km, but I filled at a different station this time so may have put more in the tank than last time. It'll even out.

Colder weather on this tank, same driving. Some towing.

Driving with load on this tank, trying to keep the inst mpg below 3l/100km on the Scangauge. Was showing about 3.3l/100km for the trip every day, was also under-reading by a few percent so corrected it up.

Engine pre-heater back on this tank, so CLT at around 30C at morning start-up.

1.474 per litre. Refilled with Neste Pro. Refilled right up the pipe to get a better baseline on future tanks, I will do the same for a more consistent fill. Cold air intake added at the end of this tank, and MAF sensor cleaned at the same time. Also aircon system removed, some ducting for the rad to come next before the lower grill block goes back on for the winter. Morning temps down to around 3-5C but evenings still about 20C.

1.459 per litre, ordinary Neste diesel this fill. Scangauge said 24l, so re-calibrated to -55%, it may now be reading a little optimistically. Misty mornings and lower intake temps, will soon be able to re-install the full grill block. Have been P&Ging as much as possible.

Have just noticed these last two fills very consistent FE, both on Neste Pro, so will be interesting to see what this tank of Neste ordinary gives.

On the winter tyres still, so not bad mpg. Unable to P&G much as the small road is a lot busier due to some roadworks on the big road. Morning around 0-5C, afternoon about 15C. Block heater for an hour every trip, lower grill block opened up a bit to allow better cooling.

Back on the winter tyres due to a near-blow-out on the summers. Can't afford new tyres so pulled the studs out and will have to do. Frosty mornings but +10 to +15 C afternoons. Unexpectedly high mileage. Could be due to summer diesel. Filled as usual to five clicks, but have been switching off at traffic lights and P&Ging a lot this last little while due to extremely tight budget.

Effing unreal! Was hoping from an improvement from the Neste Pro diesel but not this much. Daily commute between home and work, P&G wherever possible. Avoiding motorway most mornings, almost all on small road so plenty of opportunity for that. Also upper grill block reinstalled for faster warm-up.

During this tank: changed air filter (old one totally filthed), EGR vac lines replaced, MAP line to ECU replaced, brake slider pins cleaned.

Mileage mostly motorway at around 100kph or less, but with a fair few cold short trips to the shops over xmas. Weather mostly between -20C to around freezing, snow everywhere naturally.

Managed another 4 litres from first click until it gurgled up the pipe, not sure how well the tank fills but I'm sure it'll all average out. No towing this tank, mostly 50 mph, apart from this morning into work at 60. Tyres could do with a pump as the temps have dropped recently. Air filter needs changing too.

Approx. kilometerage of 303km, as the battery went flat between fills and wiped out the trip twice. Distance based on what I remember from last time I looked at gauge. 120km towing trailer, 80km with flatish winter tyres, now on better winter tyres. Plenty of little jobs to do to this car to improve the running!

Edit: just updated kilometerage as shown by google maps, at 317km total seems pretty correct to me.
