    yep, sounds about right.... the veccy C is a very heavy car and the 1800 works hard to pull it along..TBH, i get better economy out of my 3.2 than my brother does out of his 1800....his works so hard, while my 3.2 has a lazy life..

    any car will use a lot more running are town , on the motorway you would notice a big difference. around the town mines will get maybe 200 miles form half a tank were as my impreza will only get 100 miles from a full tank but its better on a run

    nope.... unfortunatly the veccy c is just too heavy for the 1800 to be really economic..

    I've got a 1.8 estate (05 plate) and I average 34 - 36 mpg on a real mixture of roads.

    I think you may have a problem as you say its judders on acceleration and from standstill. There is a clutch issue (which I think only affects cars from 04 plate onwards) which may not apply here due to yours happening whilst moving.

    Have you tried a different make fuel to see if that makes a difference? (What do you run it on? Supermarket type fuel?)
