    Default Fuel Economy

    Hi,

    I have a 2009 1.8 Vectra Sri and I have managed to get the mpg up to around 36.2. This is a vast improvement to when I bought the car 3 months ago (it was hovering around the 26.0 mark).

    I do a fair amount of motorway driving (just done a 300 mile round trip to London) but also work just 10 miles from home (so a fair amount of city driving too).

    Is this a fair mpg to be getting from this car? Should I be using Super Unleaded (98 RON) or is the Regular Unleaded (95 RON) more than adequate?

    Thanks for the help.
    Neil

    My car has averaged about 36 mpg over the lst 6,000 miles. If you drive at 50-60mph you will get around 45 mpg.
