    ==========================================
    i went from Shiremoor ( 7 miles from Newcastle ) to Drayton Manor ( Thomas Land ) , 210 miles away in my 2006 ( 56 ) 2.2. petrol direct Design Vectra and it cost me approximately £ 35 .....

    i think when i filled it up with £ 35 it was already just over the red on the petrol gauge and it went to almost 3/4 full ...

    and when i arrived at my destination it was just above the red on the gauge again ...

    the journey there , i would say was 60 % motolrway and 40 % streets or back roads and i used cruise control when i could at a maximum of no more than 70 m.p.h. where legally permittable ..

    Vehicle : Saab 9-3 Aero

    Trim : Aero

    Engine : 2.8 Turbo V6

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 62000

    Default

    I did a little test yesterday on the way to my moms (30 miles) 70% motorway 20% A road (60mph) 10% street road (30/40mph). I know I must not trust the onboard comp but I kept to 65mph cruise on motorway, 50mph cruise on a roads and 30 on streets. I averaged 39.8 mpg.
    My range went from 330 miles to 413 miles even after the 30 mile trip lol..........Back to 292 after driving back tho lol got bored its a 2.2 not a 1.2 lol....................In my experience the 2.2 direct can be economical, but hey you brought the 2.2 for a reason and the reason was not for economical driving haha

    ===============================================
    Just done some calculations .....

    £ 35 pounds divided by 210 miles costs me ....

    16.6 pence per mile for petrol on it's own ...

    some people like to involve other costs such as insurance , tax etc , etc , but as i've already paid for them , i don't include them on a journey ..

    if you paid 1.45 for petrol =1.45 x 4.5= £6.525pg £63/6.525 =9.655g then 360/9.655= 37mpg..... thats not bad for a petrol.
