    Default Great Miles per Gallon

    I'v done it at last! I managed to get 45.5 mpg out of the 2.2 direct last week. How much more I can squeeze out of it I don't know but i'm well chuffed at that result.

    The 1.8VVT is the most thirsty 4 cylinder you can get in a Vectra in the real world!!

    Just driving with a very light right foot on the A71 from Livingston to Kilmarnock. Twisty road with not a lot of space for high speed overtaking, especially with the flow of traffic on it. Average speed was 55 -60 mph and it returned that MPG.

    I've had 44mpg out of my 2.2 non although this was on a run with no town driving and no bad traffic (63miles). I did drive below the national no speed limit on the motorways. Normally this car gives me 24MPG typical, but on the same run (44MPG) as above driving how I like to (no not flat out) I get 28MPG-32MPG

    So yes in perfect conditions and very light on the throttle MPG can be obtained but this is so unrealistic, basically this car drinks badly and is having the wife push me to get shoot.

    You can't turn the non in a direct, well not with out a new head and ecu.

    I get 40-45 mpg on a regular basis from my 2.2 Direct

    Mostly motorway work - But there again I do drive sensibly, 80ish on motorway and proper speed limits elsewhere due to 6 points...... and only daft once in a while - usually at the junction of the M6 and M58 - There is nothing that tells you how quickly you can get to a speed, just not to exceed it!!
