    Default Vectra MPG

    Hi,

    Just wondering what the mpg should be on a vectra 1.8vvt.

    My 2008 vectra has been getting 34mpg on normal driving around the streets since I bought it last year, averageing 450 miles per tank.

    In the last 2 weeks my mpg has been falling and is currently at 27 and still dropping with the exact same driving. Now averaging 350 miles per tank.

    Anyone that can advise me what is wrong? It's going in for a service in April, had last service in April 2011.

    Many thanks

    On a long run I got just shy of 50mpg sitting on the motorway.

    It is definitely getting worse, Iv not relied in the on board computer, Iv recorded the miles and litres I'm putting in then worked out the mpg that way, and it's the same as the display says.

    Cold weather affects MPG as does low tyre pressure

    The figures seem to be abit all over the place!

    What are the things to change to increase mpg then,

    Tyre pressures
    Any filters that may need changing? Which ones?
    What about a fuel cleaner like redex?

    Driving style!

    I think the reason mine is so low is because the car never warms up when driving to work (2 miles, 5 mins) and spends a fair bit of time in the McDonalds drive through.
