    Default back to back economy

    Has anyone gone from a Vectra with the CDTi 150 to the Insignia with the CDTi 160 how do you find they compare in your routine for economy?

    I have read many opinions on the competition some sound dire some sound passable but wanted a real life opinion.

    I have gone from a vec c gsi to an insignia cdti 160.
    To be honest the mpg is pretty crap on the insignia about 34.3 mpg on average.
    I do mainly short trips, but on a run it is good high 40s.
    My gsi was doing about 24mpg so the difference aint massive.
    I like the new car but still miss the 3.2 v6!

    the insignia is a much heavier car than the vec so wont return such hot fuel figures especially in town

    Cant give you a back to back - but a few figures from my Insignia Elite ecoflex 160

    Pure motorway driving @ 70mph averages about 61mpg
    Pure town driving about 48mpg
    Combined about 53mpg

    I am seeing others posting some pretty poor results, but mine seems to deliver results which i am happy with.
