Now that the 330d is well and truly 'run in' I have been checking the fuel consumption on this trip. The car has now done 23K miles and this is it's 4th journey to the Balkans. Yesterday I filled up to the brim in Liezen in Styria (Austria) then drove 677 km / 421 miles to Lukavac in Bosnia i Hercegovina where I filled up again with only 33.51 litres Apart from 3 border crossings Austria to Slovenia / Slovenia to Croatia / Croatia to Bosna I was in 8th gear all the way and cruising at the speed limit of 130kph / 81mph - really According to my schoolboy maths and conversions that makes it 4.95 l/100km or 57.1 mpg That's better than my old 320d - but only for one day and a special day at that - South of Zagreb the autoput was pretty near deserted - only the occasional truck. For the whole trip Aberdeenshire to Tuzla - 3035 km / 1886 miles the consumption has been 5.88 l/100km / 48.1 mpg. That's pretty good too as I was 'skelping on' as they say in Scotland - especially in Germany - cruising at 100mph where possible with occasional bursts up to around 125 mph. Traffic on the German autobahns prevented me reaching the magic 200kph for more than just a few minutes at a time - it needs a load of concentration to travel fast on the old 2-lane autobahn sections with the amount of trucks there are on weekdays on the A3. Hopefully it will be less busy on the return journey.
