    Default tyre pressure Q,, results.

    some of you will have read my question about increasing the tyre pressures as I had a long ish trip to do mainly Mway, with a heavy load, I put 39 in the back a 35 in the front (215/55/16 falken) and that worked, car gave a magic carpet ride, 512 miles 424 Mway + 88 miles in Maidstone, sat at 70 mph every where possabile and used 55 ltrs/ (12 galls) so 42.66 MPG,Verry good for a fully loaded 1.8, one thing I did notice was other relatives arriving (it was a big funeral) in fords/ peugeot, ALL had to straighten their backs,, not even my 90/80 year old passengers had to do that,

    Of course your passengers' lack of backache might just have been down to the lovely comfy seats in the Vectra....

    yeah these engines are pretty good on the fuel.

    I was worried it would be a guzzler when I bought it

    I have been pleasantly surprised. Just got 520 miles out of a tank

    that reminds me I need fuel on the way home
