I sat at 70 on the way there average 53.7 mpg all the way on the way back I sat at 63 mpg and 30 in town, average 58.9 mpg, temp sat at 85 heaters not on but on hot air. Not bad really and says I have 320 miles left in tank, 20 pound yesterday 30 this morning.

    54 mpg is still pretty good tbh, dropped me toast when i saw 63mpg though!

    Currently using mime for town stuff and get about 41mpg, start new job in Feb (after being made redundant in Nov) and will need to do 35 miles on the motorway so hoping to see better figures soon.

    I bought the car last May, as I knew redundancy was coming and for my job I would need to start travelling more.

    Mine's the 120 club and got 95k on the clock, but don't find it too bad for a big old barge.

    Next steps are getting it mapped and cambelt/water pump done, or changing for an 08 plate Sri or Elite, or saving for an Insignia (love the tourer).

    Only reservation about the Insignia are the sub 40mpg, but I believe these would getter better with more mileage.
