    Default I'm looking at a Vec C and have a MPG question

    Hi everyone,

    I am looking at getting a Vectra C in the next coming weeks once my Focus diesel sells, and have been looking about already to get an idea of prices etc, and have been looking at 2 cars, first is a 1.8 LS with sri bits on it, now i owned a 1.8 Vec B SRi 120 a year or so ago, and went from that too a 2.6 v6 sri vec b, and noticed that the v6 was better on juice, now i am just wondering if the C's 1.8 are the same with the crap mpg?

    Also the other car i am looking at is the Vec C SRI 2.2, but this would cost a little more too insure, and I would also want to get the chain done if there was no evidence of it being done recently so that would be added cost too.

    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    i think the 1.8 does not do great economy as its is a small engine for what is a big car. the 2.0t is a good engine to go for, reasonable economy with plenty of umpf.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Timing chain is only replaced when it gets noisy/rattly on the 2.2 petrol. Should normally be good for at least 80K

    Hi Rennie, I can only speak for my own car, a 1.8 sxi 2004, it has averaged 38 mpg for the last 15,000 miles, mpg did drop for a short while, but that was a faulty stat, now sorted, in fact it is a good tip with any petrol vec to make sure it runs at aprox 87 degrees, if every thing is right with the stat it should get up to temp in 4 miles. my mates V6 takes a little longer.
