That'll help the average I'd say.... but looking up specifications the urban consumption is 12.8l/100KM so perhaps I shouldn't be too surprised.
I have noticed that the engine seems to take a long time to come up to temperature. Run into town, wander round for 1.5 hrs, drive back home - temp gauge never made it past 1/3. So I'm suspecting thermostat is plonked...
"If the thermostat fails stuck open however, it can be less obvious and can go unnoticed for a long period of time. That’s because the temperature gauge needle won’t bury itself in the red; instead the car will take forever to warm up to operating temperature. The downside of this is loss of fuel economy, and the engine to run rich for a longer period of time which can result in more unnecessary wear." [source]
Will consult with Jon at Auto38... think it will be new thermostat later this week.
Just looking back through the service records I received with the car, the ABS unit had already been repaired and re-coded back in 2016. Thinking about it - this is about how long my repaired one lasted in my X5.... so perhaps expect these repaired units to only last a couple of years 😕
Washed the car for the first time today... fair bit of kerbing on the wheels - so will have to get Wheel Magician on this soon. I really do like the Style 68 wheels but they are a bit of a pain to clean
