FUEl CONsumption on my 91 BX TZD HELP!

Post by MOrales »

HEllo Guys,im writing you from Uruguay since doing research on the net,i find out about your bx club.
A month ago i bought this Citroen Bx TZD ,1.9 turbodiesel, i love it,its a pleasure to drive,but when i did numbers of how many kilometers per liter it had gave me it came out only to be 12 kms per liter! This on a mix drive, higway and city,not really heavy traffic.
My question to you guys is that if im among the parameters to expect or i should get much more than those 12 kml per liter.
I was expecting much more,at least 15 mix and at least 17 km liter on highway.DIdnt try only highway yet.
Thanks and SALutes.

:cry:

There was no such thing as a 19TD, but they have become more common in recent years. Perhaps if ithas been swapped then maybe something relevent hasn't...?

Oh and FYI MOrales, You should expect around 23km/litre (5.1 l/100km) highway driving (@55 MPimpG).

Probably assumes it a 1.9TD although its 1769, its not uncommon.

To much coincidence this post appeared the same time we are discussing fuel consumption in another diesel thread :idea:
1991 BX19 TZS 04/01/91 (Deceased)
1990 BX19 TRS 27/10/89 (Reborn)
1992 BX19 TXD (Ex UK - K 744 SDF) 15/06/92
1990 BX19 TZS Auto 06/11/1989
1992 BX TZD Turbo Estate (Ex UK) 1/07/91

you mean is not uncommon to call it 1.9 or is not uncommon the 12 km per liter average that it gives me?

FYI = For Your Information. The vast majority of Turbo Diesels are 1769cc. 12km per litre sound far too low. Check the fuel lines for leaks as a starting point.

Do you have any pictures of your car?
