    Default MPG on 3.2 V6

    I'm thinking of buying a Vectra 3.2 V6, but I've read somewhere that I can expect 16 mpg in traffic

    I'm currently driving an ancient Granada 2.9v6 and that manages over 20mpg in traffic. Surely a modern car with similar engine would do better?

    Vehicle : Vectra GSi 3.2 V6

    Trim : GSi

    Engine : Z32SE

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 210,022

    Default

    Mine averages about 26-28 mpg in town. One thing about the GSi, though, is that if you boot it, even a bit, it REALLY hurts fuel mileage! I have read on this forum that you can empty a GSi in under 100 miles and I can well believe that! I am getting about 350 miles from a 61 litre tank and that is not even empty - still about 9 or so litres left! Not too shabby at all, considering the performance available.

    But driven gently, as mine mostly is, high 20s are perfectly achievable.

    Oh and welcome to the forum!

    Thanks for the welcome. I don't drive with a lead foot, so I should be okay then. Just waiting until an Automatic GSI turns up within a 100 mile radius and I'll buy it. I guess its a bad time of year for buying and selling cars. Hopefully there will be more choice in the New Year

    61 litres is a small tank for a car with a big engine. Granada has 70 litres and I sometimes dont last a week on that.

    I'm averaging 26mpg, so not too bad for a big V6.

    to the forum m8,

    don't have a second thought about the mileage, if driven normally you'll get about 26/29 town/local road driving and about 30/35 on longer journey's,
    but if you drive it hard i've seen it drop to 14mpg (only once though, accelerating is expensive )

    Buy it you won't regret it.

    I have managed 38mpg on a run at 70mph on cruise control on the motorway. That is not typical! I'd say an average of 35-36mpg could be achieved.

    But there's SOOOOO much fun to be had on the B-roads!
