    after 5 miles the poor engine will be at about the temperature where it will start working properly and give descent mpg. you could get a pushbike and use that instead, that will see a big increase in mpg. you could get a small petrol engined car that will warm up quicker and give more mpg anyway. either way, you have the wrong car to do a 5 mile commute.

    then accept the lower mpg you will get. i take it the poor beast gets a good blast at least once a week. due to short journeys you need to change the engine oil more often.

    No. Traffic is not bad at all . Smooth journey at 30-40 mph

    I would expect a bit more tbh. Tyre pressures? Brakes binding?
    Any other issues? That age 3.0 TDi is prone to fuel injector issues.
