    Default 2.0 turbo

    Hi all

    Just upgraded my 20006 1.8vvti to a 2006 33,000 mile 2.0 turbo. Any way wifey and I went for a drive today and on 110 mile jurney on mixed roads the car averaged 36.8 mpg. This was a mix of average driving and what a car it turned out to be. Nice and smooth at low revs but when you do put you foot down the acceleration is fantastic. I was just wandering what mpg other members get from their cars.

    Yeah

    It felt good and as I only paid £4700 for the car it makes it feel even better

    Don't forget, that engine is performing with one hand tied behind its back. It has 175 BHP, but 200+ is actually what it should produce - Vauxhall used the lower power version to make sure it didn't steal sales from the more expensive 3.2 V6. Get it remapped to 210-220 and you'll love it even more.

    Nick, that is an excellent price for the car, not so great for us owners though and as the guys have mentioned, a remap makes the car even better
