I have a 53 plate Kia Sorento 2.5 Diesel. I purchased it last

Resolved Question:

I have a 53 plate Kia Sorento 2.5 Diesel. I purchased it last year as a tow car for our caravan and it's brilliant. For to & from work (5miles each way - unable to do over 40mph),towing and longer trips I get in the region of 28mpg. Would you consider this to be about right - or could this be improved? Thank you.

Hello, welcome. My name isXXXXX will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.

Honestly the mpg that you are getting out of the vehicle is about normal to what the vehicle is supposed to get according to the specifications.
It is possible to improve the mpg slightly by running a fuel treatment through the system about once a month.
