See what you mean **** had a look still none the wiser now :?Ducktape said:Hi Chris
If it is a new one it will be Euro4.
If you have the time and inclination to read the detail it is here:

How times have changed 93.9p a litre !bobsabuilder said:As I understand it the Euro 3 was 174 hp and the Euro 4 171 or 172 hp (note hp NOT bhp) and I thought the torque figures were the same 403nM (about 297 in old money!)
I don't care what the official figures are for mpg as they are not what I call "real world" figures.
Mine has now done circa 11k miles of mixed driving:
Motorways/A roads/B roads/ Un classed roads/Long distances/Urban/Towing empty trailers/Towing 2.5 tonne trailers/ driving with no bed cover/driving with a bed cover/driving with a canopy (SnugTop)/On & Off road
So a wide range and overall I am happy with the MPG I get.
The most I've had was 39 mpg (over 300 ish miles of A roads)and the worst was in the teens but that was having some real fun with it.
I tend to average 30 mpg over a full tank unless I've been doing a lot of towing.I keep a record of mileage and fuel costs for my books so I know what I'm getting.
This morning I filled up and it cost me £67 at 93.9p per litre thanks to Mr Sainsbury so that means I put 71.35 Ltrs in my tank. That equates to 15.7 Gallons and the mileage since my last fill up was 489 miles.
That gives me a gnats over 31 mpg and at that, I'm happy
In the past I've done 600 ish miles in one day of motorway driving and achieved just over 35 mpg.
I've also done 400 miles of towing and only got 23 mpg.
The biggest effect on your mpg is your own driving style.
Driving around my local town I often don't go above 1500rpm as there is no need to.
