I know there are a few t & T ers that have this vehicle. What mpg do you get when towing and solo? We used to have a petrol version and got about 28 mpg solo and about 20-25 towing.

We have just been to see one, x reg at ?10,995 with 34,000 on the clock.

Just got back from a week in the new forest with the van. Our Fronterra 2.2DTI gives us in the region of 27mpg towing and around 32mpg solo. Like yourself we had a 2.2 petrol before ghanging back to diesel and the difference was amazing. With the diesel you hardly know the van is on the back and the torque means effortless overtaking. As an example from the |Junction of the M3 and M27 today Northbound until joining the M25 the only time I changed out of 5th gear was to stop at the Fleet services, the resat of the way I cruised at 55 - 60 without ant effort.

A couple of our Delivery Drivers supervisors share a Frontera (03 plate), I think it's the Turbo-Diesel.

They seem to have no qualms about performance, nor fuel econmy (someone else pays)

And as for keeping up with the traffic flow......... well, let's just say it parts at their approach ::D:

      Hi all, Heads up on this topic. We've part chopped the Coachman for a Hymer 541 Luxusline at Lowdhams.  This whole episode has cost us nine grand to change our old Hymer to the Coachman and now a grand to change to the Hymer, is it worth it ? yes well worth a grand to be rid of the Coachman but I doubt this newer Hymer is 10 grand better than our old one. We're off to Vollenhove & Groningen Northern Holland in two weeks time and then on down to our former village just below the Saumur on the Loire, really am looking forward to doing the trip now ! Happy caravanning, indoors.
