Just passed the first 100 miles in my new Accord 2.2 i-DTEC.

After topping up I was surprised and disappointed to find it had only achieved 23.46 MPG. Unfortunately all short runs to date.

Is this normal while "running in" ?

Also I have noticed it can be rather smelly from diesel fumes.

No better than when it was new come to think of it.

if you drive normally without being painfully slow you can achieve 35-40 mpg however on a run (london to southend) i was averaging around the 50 mark!
