I had one for a while - I don't think I ever even saw 25mpg; it was just as bad as the 3.2V6 that followed it!

why? It's a basic  30 year old diesel engine fitted with an automatic transmission and bolted into a heavy car. Its main attribute was that it was slightly better on fuel than the 2.5l petrol BMW six and almost as civilised. That was so surprising that many buyers were prepared to accept that it had 2.0l performance.

Paper weight?  :D Having pulled a certain admin's one in and out of the engine bay countless times in his search for one that actually works, that's a considerable understatement. ;D

If the captain that's just been sacked from that big new aircraft carrier has eloped with the anchor, a BMW tractor on the end of a chain will stop it going anywhere.  :y

 I achieved between 32-34 MPG from my facelift estate auto.
Not chipped either
Had the car 7 1/2 years
Only sold it because the Monza was finished.
Had no room for both cars

I got 29 on local driving and 33 on long distance. Mine was the TD auto estate. Loved it, kept it for 19 years. :y

I used to get 23-25mpg on a commute out of my 2.5TD; a friend used to regularly get 600 miles to a tank on his manual 2.2DTi.. whatever that is in mpg!

BMW's petrol sixes are the same: enormous and heavy. If you fit a small block Ford to a 3 series, the frontof the car sits higher due to the lower weight that is further back in the engine bay. Its short length is one of the Ford's best attributes
