Hi folks, hope you're all well. Been a good while since I've been on here as we've had 49k miles over 3.1/2 years of trouble free motoring with the wife's remodelled '66 plate 1.5Dci Stepway Laureate.
We were waiting until the current situation is over with the intention of part-exchanging it against a new one....as similar as possible but different colour for a change. Our existing is zero road-tax (which I know changed as we bought at the very end of the change), and returns an average 60mpg on her 80 mile/day motorway journey. I've driven it myself on a 100 mile run purely on motorway with cruise control on at 56mph and had a very impressive 76.2mpg - see photo.
Looking on Dacia's website I simply can't find any diesel engines listed....have they stopped them and been replaced by this Bi-Fuel (is it petrol/LPG?)......if so then for us this is a problem as we need the maximum mpg possible.
If we part company with Dacia now it's a shame as we were hoping to buy this new car to last until she retires in 4 years time than go back to nicer cars when mileage returns to normal. We've always treat this car as just something cheap to run and buy as cars are simply a commodity to us given her daily drive.
