    Default CDTI 160 rubbish on fuel

    I've just got a 12 plate insignia SRI 160 manual. I love the car, its brilliant but its really bad on fuel. If I take it steady on the motorways, keeping between 60 and 70 I'll be lucky to average 48mpg. I had a Vectra 150 CDTI and doing the same journey I'd easily see between 55 and 60 mpg.

    Are everybody's like thsi or is it just mine. The official figures I take with a pinch of salt but I would have thought I would be closer to them than this.

    I lot of the earlier ones were worse than that (speaking from experience). I thought that the newer models were better. I think the ecoflex model provides good figures.

    Hi Unikarl,

    Had mine about a week a 160 with 25k on it had a run from derbyshire to London last week going down steady 70 ish I got
    61mpg coming back a bit quicker 70+ 58mpg now dropped to 54 with a little town work.That was using the Esso premium
    diesel.

    anyone no where you stand with a re map and warranty?

    Just had Bury hands free kit fitted that's a bit so so! And the white is sending me a bit OCD .

    Next on the list is parking sensors and tips guys been looking at the ones that mount behind the bumpers.

    Cheers guys

    Anything from teens in traffic to low/mid 30's for motorway cruising. Push the "enjoyment" button and i've seen single figures !
