    Default 1.8 vvt

    Always regretted dobbin in my rattly 150cdti for a KIA CEED (arrrrgh!) a couple of years ago. I'm thinkin of cutting my losses and having another veccy. Can anybody tell me what rpm a 1.8 does at 70mph? AND - if there's much difference in mpg between a 1.8 and a 2.2 direct? AND - does the 2.2 have a 6 speed box? AND - FINALLY -which is more reliable, 1.8 or 2.2?

    no to the dual mass flywheel either, for a mix of performance and economy id go for the 2.2 meself.

    i went purely for economy so bought the 1.8 ecotec not vvt, wont scare anyone at the traffic lights but does return average of 40 mpg

    so does mine, well its 3100 rpm at 70 mph its a 1.8 sxi on a 53 plate,, but the vec I had before was just a L and that had a higher ratio gear box siting at 2650 rpm at 70 mph, my sxi has averaged 38.6 mpg for the over 20,000 miles I have owned it, long M-WAY journeys at 70 mph FULLY LOADED it does 43 mpg, NO DMF

    2007 VVT with 17inch wheels 225/45 tyres, 70 MPH is 2800 rpm on the dial, not much in it between the two motors but the 2.2 would off course have the edge as it should with an extra 400cc.

    1.8 is probably more reliable, the 2.2 can sometimes suffer from failed high pressure fuel pumps and jumping drive chains.

    Default 1.8 vvt

    Many thanks for your replies - I'll have to see what's about. So far, the petrols seem a fair bit cheaper than the diesels - I've found a 25K 2.2 SRi estate 08 for £6.5k, and a 35k 150 cdti Sri estate 09 for £9k! I had a 150 cdti a while back - fantastic motor but the engine's poor reputation was always a worry, hence my leaning to a petrol this time. I suppose the 2.2 should be a safer bet than the diesel having no turbo to fall off.

    Anybody know what a 2.2 revs at 70?

    the 2.2 direct comes with both a 5 speed and a 6 speed gearbox....

    mine runs at 130 KM/H at 3600 RPM.. and 110 KM/H at about 3100 RPM

    My 2008 VVT is around 2800 at 70mph.

    How come you want to know that? Is it for fuel economy?

    I remember my old Corsa used to do 3500rpm at 70mph. Used to hate seeing the revs that high. It used to do en extra 500rpm for every 10mph as well, so 80mph would be 4000rpm!
