    Default Mpg 1.8 VVT Estate

    Hi Guys and girls,

    I'm new to the forum, forgive me if this has been discussed before.

    I am getting a steady 29 mpg average no matter what i do and how quick i drive it does not change, before i start changing everything to see if it helps is there a common thing i can do eg: spark plugs, cleaning sensors? thanks in advance

    Also check for brakes binding, jack each corner up and check the wheels move freely.

    I have the 1.8VVT saloon and easily get over 35 mpg

    Sorry to jump on this, i agree with the above but have u tried resetting the mpg counter 1st and starting from zero as i had same prob when i got my vectra it never changed and it wasn't till i did this that anything changed.. Once you have selected mpg on trip just hold down left directional changer on steering wheel then away you go and see if this solves your problem before throwing money at service items.
