    Default £30 diesel & 150mile: 3.0 v6 cdti

    Hi,

    Is this good for the engine size? Im driving pretty conservative on the roads.....

    Cheers

    I get about 400 miles from a full tank on mine. £82. Computer says that's about 35mpg combined. 80% of it is on the motorway though

    Seems a little low. Cost me about £67 to fill the tank and I get 430 miles on a full tank. Averages about 34mpg.

    You're not filling it from empty (although not advisable to run it empty with a diesel) or anywhere near then. Vec c's have 61 litre tanks

    All Vec C's have 61 litre tanks apart from the estates which have 60 litre tanks (1 litre difference) this is standard across the entire range.
