    Default Engine Advice Please

    Hi All,

    Anyone have a 2.0T that could give me an idea what they are like to live with,

    What sort of mpg do you get, reliability issues, insurance cost compared to the vec B 2.0ltr sri

    Been told that the 2.0T is the best petrol engine to go for (2.2/2.2 direct) been put off the cdti’s after reading all the horror story’s, think the petrol could be cheaper in the long run.

    Thanks for any advice

    no horror stories from work. don't have chain failures or anything but can be thirsty some cases the 2.8 is better on fuel.

    The 2.0t is a gem.

    I get 30 mpg round town and my office is 5 mins from my house so do a fair bit of stop start.

    I've had 41 mpg on motorway using cruise at 70 n 40 mpg without it.

    Get around 380 - 430 miles from tank depending on driving I do.

    I've just switched to v power and on second tank much more responsive and my mpg slightly up.

    I've averaged 32 ish mpg over 1800 miles.

    I stayed clear of 2.2 as two mates had them one went back after a week due to fuel pump. The older 2.2 I had in an astra coupe n mpg was terrible.
    150 bhp cdti has lots of issues n did not suit my stop start driving. Wife has the 120 bhp Saab 93 and although it does 40 round town it is very underpowered (IMO) and I constantly battle to keep it in power range.



    Love the car.
