    Thumbs up quite chuffed on mpg

    did a run from mid wales to cadwell park over the bank holiday, round trip of 370 odd miles cost me roughly 60 quid in fuel and i worked out my mpg from one fill to an other and it averaged 45 mpg.

    not bad for 1.8 SRI and 7 mpg more than the computer readout, i didnt hang around either on the motorway stints.

    and the cruise control paid dividends on the m42 speed restrictions as well

    That works out (assuming £1.32 per litre) to be 37mpg and not 45mpg.

    the car wasnt full when i set off and i roughly brought it back withthe same as i set off on, my figures are based on tank to tank fill up of 230 miles and 26 litres of unleaded. also our cheapest fuel here is 133.9

    thats 53 mpg then!
    your original figure of 370 miles for the cost of £60 works out about right for a 1.8

    considering the size and weight of Vecs, I think they are all surprisingly good.. especially the 1.9CDTI!!! - I was well impressed with my old 2.2i direct averaging 37.
