My stilo is a 1.9 jtd and it seems to be using a lot of fuel I drive carefully but cant get more than 40 mpg on a combined cycle I do 25 miles per day each way 5 miles in town 20 on motorway at 70 mph.I have used cleaning fluid in the fuel for the injectors and it dose not smoke or through soot out when revving.
