    Mine had a new EGR valve fitted on Friday so I treated it to a tankful of V power diesel (£1.57 a litre ouch) on Sunday morning.

    I had a nice gentle cruise down to Devon and back, with a bit of running round whilst I was there, 185 miles in total and averaged 59 MPG with the range still showing 650. At one point I had it up to 65 MPG average.

    Well pleased with that.

    I towed our lass' old Avensis home when it broke down,... could not believe how hard it was to tow. Having 190bhp and 300lb torque seemed to count for nothing!!... mpg went right out of the window!!! Was on a full tank with 690 range showing,.. after 18 miles of towing I was down to 410!!!

    Vehicle : Vectra GSi 3.2 V6

    Trim : GSi

    Engine : Z32SE

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 210,022

    Default

    I ran my tank down and am trying VPower in my GSi to see if it has an effect on fuel consumption. It might just be me but the car does already feel a bit more lively, which is saying something!

    I typically average 28-30 mpg in mixed (town, motorway aand country lane) driving. We'll see.

    So Vectras like a drink whilst towing, eh?

    Normally run mine on BP Ultimate when I fill up, but the missus only puts normal in. Haven't tried VPower only because BP is the nearest garage.

    OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Think my old Vec C 2.2dti has done better.

    Towed my caravan 75miles mainly motorway (50 miles) and fuel used was 2.5gallons. Which equates to 30mpg. Used cruise control 90% of the way set at 62mph.

    My previous towing journeys over the years have always been late 20s to early 30s, so still the norm for my car.

    Do you notice any improvement compared with 95-octane?
