    Default 3.2gsi mpg....

    very happy....

    a did a run yesterday to london about 120miles and I got 41.7mpg.

    did the same journey back and got 38.7mpg (a bit uphill).

    I dont think it likes the sainsbury fuel though, its a bit lumpy off the throttle.

    got an insurance quote as well, got it down to £335 - not too bad.

    I worked out that a tank only last me 7 trips to work - then 60 quid gone....

    I may be getting an aygo when I move to devon, the village we've chosen is down twisty lanes and it would cost a fortune to run, and I'd hurt myself.

    great car though.

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 140 Ecoflex S/S

    Year : 2013

    Default

    Interesting to note from Judas's pic above is that a quick calculation works out the mpg at 42.21, not 40.00 as shown. (59.1 trip divided by 1.4 trip consumption = 42.21).

    As the car holds a theoretical 13.4 gallons, you should have round about 12 gallons left, so at 40 mpg the range should be nearer to 480 miles?

    So it might be even better than you think but how reliable are these trip computer gizzmos?

    It's just that I don't trust the OB system on my GSi.

    Still good mpg though mate by anybody's book.
