Yeah the 1.6 diesel can vary quite a lot with the mpg. Bare in mind when the trip meter is reset, they can take a while to stabilise, I saw everything from 199 mpg (the max it can show) to late teens not long after a trip-reset, usually it's stabilised after about 30 miles. Fuel makes a difference too in my experience, with Gulf giving me best computer and real mpg.
In my current 8G 1.8 petrol it's a similar story with the trip, I saw 150 mpg indicated after a trip reset last week, which was showing 119 mpg after 5 miles (like a saddo I took photos of these figures), when I arrived at my destination after 40 miles it was showing 88 mpg, now it's stabilised it's only showing 51 mpg lol.
