    Default At what mileage was your engine run in?

    Currently on 18500 mls and getting better more responsive than when at 5k

    Hope in another 10k it's better and better mpg

    120 cdti 58 plate.

    Does around town 650 mls to a full tank better on a run.

    When the warranty ran out, at 4 years old / 100K miles

    I would expect settled performance by 5K miles though
    What sort of MPG are you obtaining?

    I reported just before Xmas that the Vectra with 55K on her was running smoother and much faster than when I bought her at 34,500 miles, my previous Vectra with 50K was also a smoother beast than the cars when they were new so they seem to like long run in periods.

    My mistake that should have been 450 mls around town and better on a run up the motorway.

    Default

    450 miles / 60 litres
    35 MPG on combined
    That is acceptable

    As you have found on longer runs this increases, and that is what you would expect

    I get about 30 MPG on daily use
    However, take a long run Motorway run of about 200 miles and I get about 35 MPG (and depending on traffic flow this can be as high as 40MPG)

    Are you in a diesel ?!
    Edit: Just read that u have a 3.0 v6 m8internet... thought you'd get more than that tho?

    Should be higher than that on a motorway - regularly get v.high 40's, low 50's if i'm being 'quick', high 50's / low 60's if I stick the cruise control on at 70.

    I get about 37mpg around town on my CDTI 120, and I dont have a light right foot
