    thats around what we got from our old 2.2 , but it was being driven 'enthusiastically'.......i beleive others regularly see more than 28mpg..

    a better flowing airbox and the airbox mods help out..lets it breath a bit better in our experience

    I get 37 to 39 during my weekly work run which includes 50 miles, each way, on motorway. Not baaaaaadddddddddd!

    Bit less at weekends when it gets a blast out!

    Looking at LPG conversion to help with the long work run!

    I get roughly 30mpg for 'urban' driving. I'm also a delivery driver in my 2.2i Direct and i can use between 1/4 to almost 1/2 a tank in just over 4 hours!
