1.5 diesel auto C5 mpg

2500 miles since new, a bit disappointed with 45.5 average mpg so far. I am not a heavy footed driver, and no journeys are less than 10 miles.

Has anybody fitted these to a C5?

My new C5

Delivered yesterday, very pleased with it. Already used the forum to find out how to dim the driver display, my next task is to try and connect with Android Auto. The car is a 130 diesel Flair with EAT8 auto box, in Tijuca Blue. The only negative surprise is the old tech halogen headlights. Love the...
