Could it be worth putting the standard wheels on for a tank of fuel just to make sure it's not that. Then go back to the dealer

This may sound a really naive question but could the adblue be affecting it? Is there different grades of adblue? I know it’s only water and urea mixed but not sure about it!

Wide wheel do affect fuel consumption, especially heavy ones, but won't be that much like in your case. Also could be your driving pattern, if you do alot of short trips. Could be combination of both of these factors. These engines take forever to heat up to the full temperature. I had a brand new van with same engine for a day, while mine was serviced. Took about three times longer to heat up, than my petrol engine on the same run. If I had a diesel, I would be running cold engine for most part of my 7 miles journey to work.

The mileage was recorded over 3 separate motorway journeys of 330 miles each (165 each way from home to work) I live 1 mile from the motorway. There is no gear change for at least 154 miles and a constant speed of 70mph. I let the cruise control do the accelerating so I would say the driving style is very conservative. No hard accelerating!

Ok. Because of time constraints. I’ve got it booked on to a rolling road to tell me true power output but can’t get it done till 21st December. To me there is a definite power loss so I guess this will tell me if I’m write won’t it?
