    Sdi mpg

    Hi, got a 2009 Caddy 2.0 SDI a few months ago and am getting about 35 MPG, mostly driving around town stop/start. I was expecting better fuel economy tbh. The engine runs ok, anyone know what I can do to improve this. Was going to purge the injectors with Liqui Molly, other than that what could improve it ? All the wheels spin freely and are not binding.

    I asked at the garage a month or two ago when I had the cam belt & pump, and a new injector fitted; if the injector seals needed changing but their response was its not really worth it as its running OK. They hooked it up to WAGS and I do have a print out but don't know what to look for.

    Thanks

    35 mpg is a bit low for stop/start running.
