    Default Finally getting diesel's worth

    Had a trip from the Midlands down to Milton Keynes on the weekend. Had cruise control set to 62 all the way (wasn't in any particular rush, as had time to kill). I reset my average MPG before I left and had this when I got there.

    I can honestly say (hand on heart) this was not taken straight after resetting the trip
    I had forgotten about it until I got there. I'm impressed considering it's the 150bhp engine

    Normally it's at 38.7mpg constantly. First motorway blast it's had in a while

    Shows what they're capable of, though I'dve been bored senseless on the motorways for that long M6/M6 toll, M1?

    M5 to M6 and then onto the M1. Yeah I was near enough glued to the back of a lorry for about 15 miles at one point. Lucky for me I had a college mate in the car with me whom I hadn't seen in about 10 years. She kept me going bless her

    i've got the cdti150 too and find it very good on fuel, but ... to be honest, i don't think it ever genuinely gets more than 70mpg on a flat road -- Vauxhall themselves state a maximum "extra-urban" figure of just over 60mpg.
    When going slightly downhill you will exceed 60mpg in 6th gear, and that can confuse the trip computer. Always found trip computers to be very inaccurate.

    Yeah you could be right. I was drafting lorries too when I could.

    Strange, it only took me 15 minutes longer to get there than it would of done normally. Makes you think all those people in the fast lane @ 100mph+ aren't really achieving anything.
