    Default MPG Help

    Hi I got a Vectra C 2.2 Elegance auto on an 03 plate according to the trip computer I am only getting 23 mpg with just normal run around speeds is this normal? Been looking through the specs and it says I should be getting at least 30 ish. Is there anything I can do to improve this?

    I would have thought you would get more than that too, If I drive steady around town I can get that out of my 3.2.

    If I belt my V6 I get around 34. Sounds suspiously wrong. Have you done a verification check to make sure the computer is ok? Fill up and work out your mpg from distance covered since the last fill to fuel put in this time one over the other = accurate mpg. Should be within 0.5 mpg of the trip computer unless you have a tuning box on.

    My wife drives an 05 Zafira Elegance with the 2.2 petrol engine and she gets around 28mpg so as GG says, with the auto box it is about right

    We've been driving our Sig nicely, and are only getting 31mpg?? Mixture of 70mph () on A roads and a bit of twisty B-roads, mainly A roads though. Is something up with ours, do you think?

    That is about right mate, don't worry, you're a victim of the stretched figures that get posted around the net, I had a 2.2 auto Omega, 20 mpg, nothing 2.0 and above petrol engined does much more than 25 if yer lucky and thats manual, if you want to see 30+ you have to get a diesel or a 1000cc Corsa.
