two weeks for not slowing down on over run it just kept on going instead of slowing down,plus filled it up on fuel and

fuel gauge did not work properly and i got a return of 38.2 mile to the gallon and that was checked by fuel put in and

What do you mean by it not slowing down? Are you talking about it pulling while in a low gear when you aren't accelerating?

Hmmm, am not a fan of diesel cars, as I don't do enough miles to warrant getting one, but don't diesel cars still pull slowly in 1st/2nd gear with relatively no acceleration?

I remember seeing some demonstration where a guy driving a diesel and he got out and it drove itself while he walked besides it....

I've driven diesel cars for years and as shakeystevo says it's normal for diesel cars to do this. If you feel it's excessive then the dealer might be able to do something to help, but I'm not sure you've really got grounds to reject the car.
