Fuel economy of Dispatch 1.6

Hi all.  Just looking for some feedback regarding the MPG of the new shape Dispatch 1.6. Published figures are 54 mpg. Is this accurate? I am thinking of getting the 1.6L 115 as I am disappointed with my current van.

I have had a Dispatch 2014 2L LWB since March. But I'm lucky to get 39mpg out of it. I suppose I"ve been spoilt by my previous van which was a Transit Connect and regularly achieved 55mpg.
Is the Dispatch 1.6 sluggish? My Connect was slow going up hills.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Fuel economy of Dispatch 1.6

I've got a 2014 Dispatch 1.6 H1L1 and I find the engine pretty responsive across the range even fully loaded. It's much better even than my Golf 1.6TDI which is less flexible and requires constant gear changing to get the power when you need it.  As for the Dispatch's fuel consumption, I've been ploughing the M6 for the last year where I keep the speed between 60-65 and, yes, I have touched 50 mpg but about 47 is more usual.  However, throw on a roof rack with the wind in your face and tyres below the max recommended pressure and your down to about 40 mpg.  The only thing it lacks is a driver's armrest.
