Default Diesel Fuel Economy Dual Cab 2005 model

Hi Y'all

Trying to get some feedback here on fuel economy.

It seems since around Sep/Oct last year, my fuel economy went from getting 600-650 per tank (11 ltrs per 100KM) to 400 per tank (17 ltrs per 100KM). Which is crap.

I always fill up at Shell.

The mechanics have had a look at it and have not been able to find anything.

Last weekend, I filled up at a different servo and immediately it felt like I was getting more boost out of the engine, and then to managed to do 130KM before the needle even moved. This is what I was used to get.

Not sure in regards to whether its the fuel I was buying from Shell or whether I have had another mechanical issue appear in the car.

Has anyone else got a similar issue?

Thanks in advance
