    Default eighteen hundreds now ?

    Do any of you guys still have 1.8 petrols on here . Just a thought as thats what I used to have , it seems you all talk about V6`s and diesels nowadays .

    Or am I wrong and barking up the wrong tree .

    Ive got a 1.8.Its a great car.The exceleration on it aint exactly,well,quick,but once shes rolling shes just fine.Went down to the south of France this year for my hols and the car cruised at 80,90mph on the toll roads and returned 40 plus to the gallon. Wont be changing it for a good few years yet as ime well pleased with it.

    God you must thrash it man! I get about 120 miles from £20 and that's around town. Reset your comp and drive for a week, you should be hitting about 26-28 mpg around town with a few traffic light GP's thrown in.

    I've got the 1.8, I'm happy enough with it. Approx 33 to the gallon every week, without crawling everywhere
    Doesn't go bad once it's moving

    Thats the problem i dont thrash it, i drive it like a 70 year old, no offence to any 70 year members, it very rarely goes over 3000rpm and even less when my wife is driving!!! The 6 points was aquired whilst driving my works Astra Van usually on the way home from work when it seems to go faster than when I'm on my way to work strange i know.... I think it needs a good service (the Vectra that is not the Astravan) it was apparently done last Tuesday before i collected it but when checking the oil level at the weekend the oil on the dipstick was dark brown rather than golden coloured!!!! I would reset the trip computer but it hasn't got one on it i dont think?? If it did have the controls for it would be on the wiper stalk wouldn't it??? Dont want to sound like an idiot but I am new to the world of having gadgets on cars (last car was a Fiat Punto Sporting! Nuff said).....

    I've got the 2.2,when bought was returning 26-28 round town.
    Since fitting the BMC Air filter,and doing the little airbox mod,and resetting the ecu,and of course constantly running her on Tesco 99ron,or Shell VPower,she nows returns 31mpg round town and 36-37 on the motorways with an averge speed of 68to70mph. I never really allow her to go below half a tank and spend £15 to £20 a week on fuel,when i'm just driving round the area,back and forth work etc.

    I'm pleased with that.
