    Default The 700 club

    OK, I tickled my car through a tank of diesel; driving at 60mph on the motorways and being extra attentive on gear change & RPM. The best I could get was 654mpg. There's people on here claiming 700+mpg
    How is this possible?!!

    1.9 120

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 3.0 V6 CDTI

    Year : 2007

    Default

    I used to regularly get 700+ miles per tank from my 1.9 120, I can even manage 600+ from my 3.0 V6.
    When I'm on the motorway, which used to be alot, I get to 70 (on the speedo) and then hit the cruise. Unless there is a valid reason I then don't touch it, if I want to over take I used the cruise increase and then the cruise decrease once I have overtaken.
    On A roads, I normally get to 60, where possible and then hit cruise.
    I did Chesterfield to London, via the M42/M40 and back twice on a tank of diesel in the 1.9s

    My car is a 1.9 cdti 150 that used to be my company car and I still use for business. I have always kept a fuel log for it and based on actual mileage (not a trip computer) The best I have ever achieved was whilst on holiday at 720 miles to one tank (59.75 mpg). 401 miles per tank is my average but I always fill up before its in the red. At 720 miles the gauge was showing empty and I was very lucky to make it to the garage.

    Sorry, I meant per tank (mpt)
    I have to wonder what the differences are to get 700mpt. That's an extra 4mpg over mine.
    It's all been serviced too.
