    Poor fuel consumption on a new Kia Rio diesel

    Poor fuel consumption on a new Kia Rio diesel 27th May 08 at 10:48 AM
    I have a new Kia Rio 1.5 diesel. It has done 2,000 miles and yet I am only getting an mpg of less than 50mpg. I live in quite a rural area but predominently A roads and have been driving sensibly, and not in a city/town.

    The quoted Urban (cold) mpg is 52.3, and the combined 62.8.

    Is it worth a call to the garage or is this just the norm. I know I can't expect to get the quoted figures but expected to get somewhere near the combined figure, not less than the Urban one!
