    Default 1.8vvt fuel consumption

    Hi gguys my vvt seems to be doing rubbish on fuel averaging 40 to 44 mile off a tenner I've done a proper calculation on my iPhone and it says 27 mpg max, it's only town driving but I thought it would do better than that, stat was changed so temps are ok, seems to run spot on apart from the clutch judder .
    anything else it could be?

    cheers

    My dodgy DTI gets 43 miles to a tenner, or 50 if driving carefully. It's only because the thermostat is dodgy, and it hasn't been serviced in 31000 miles and a couple more things.

    I bought it as a run around to be honest, £900, so I'm not bothered.

    to be honest you're not far off the 30/32 you should expect from a petrol around town, I bet you'll get up to 40mpg on a long run which is about normal, consumption is affected by age, condition of the car, regular servicing, tyre pressure, weight of car, driving style...etc. try additives to clean the injection and fuel system.

    Saw a record low of 31.8 on the BC on my non vvt 1.8 yesterday. The cold weather also hits petrol consumption.
