I have just gone from a 1.6 diesel citroen C4 picasso to a tucson 1.6 petrol and I'm so gutted I didnt realise how much a difference in the mpg was, I drove from portsmouth UK to Manchester & back, the C4 was £45 the Tucson was £90

I can't believe the difference in fuel consumption, Im so disapointed with my Tucson, my 2003 Hyundai Trajet was more economical & now I hardly drive it.
Being disabled this has become a let down in my life and has made me decide on not getting another Hyundai.
Really feel :frown:let down by Dealer

Did you do research and look at the fuel consumption ratings of the vehicles you were considering?
How does your mileage compare to the advertised specs?

Frankly, this is idiotic. I have a Hyundai, and it currently is returning 76mpg. Of course it isn't a Tucson, but it is still a Hyundai (and readily available in your country), and is capable of far better fuel economy than most other vehicles on the road, including a 1.6 C4 diesel Picasso.

It's not the make of vehicle you have a problem with, it's the choice you made to buy a relatively inefficient model.
