    Default MPG?!

    Just looking over lease cars and came across this info for the 160 CDTI SRI

    Fuel Consumption
    EC Combined (mpg) 55.4
    EC Directive 1999/100/EC Applies Yes
    EC Extra Urban (mpg) 65.7
    EC Urban (mpg)

    seems optimistic from reads on here,.. has the mpg issue been addressed by VX?... or are they just throwing silly claims?...

    36mpg (mix of M/Way and not very busy town) - 160 Sri Auto 2011 - those figures are a joke!

    On a 2.2Dti SRI I get 36Mpg, and 5 miles of my daily commute is sitting in <10mph traffic on the London end of the M4. But, have just worked out my rear brakes binding, which is costing me, as other claims for Vectra Cs in the mid 40s too.

    However, that claim of EC Extra urban (mpg) 65.7 sounds a tad optimistic unless you were able to continuosly sit at 50mph for the duration of a whole tank.

    I asked this as I wondered if they addressed the lower mpg figures over the Vec as this WILL stop me buying an Insignia. Can;t accept such a huge drop in mpg. I need a car with the equal mpg fugures to the 1.9CDTI 150 Vec, going to get another Vec for 2 years and then see whats out there....maybe even a Mondeo!!!
