    Wish I could see 650miles from a tank Think best I've had is about 550, using shell v-power, but I do wear size 12.5 shoes so tend to have a heavier foot lol
    Bought my car when it had 44k on the clock and am now nearing 54k and the flywheel in rattling like a good'un Car has cost me a small fortune in the last 2 years

    mines on 109k now, dmf doesn't make any rattles clonks or any sort of noise YET but I do get a vibration when pulling away from standstill, and hill starts you have to really nurse it with the clutch to get it going...

    despite this, we've done 3k miles like it so far in the last 2 months an its not got any worse????

    Mine went at 83k 2 days after buying the car

    And as an addition, if you think your DMF is going I wouldnt just keep driving it as it could take your gearbox with it had an astra t/top in this week with this issue.
