    Question What MPG do you get ?

    What mpg does your car give? I've got the 2003 2.2 sri ( petrol ) and it only returns 29mpg normal driving and if i take it really easy i get 30mpg ( don't know if thats the norm )

    i get 25 if i take it steady.. 6mpg if i cane it hard....


    TBH, the non-direct 2.2's aren't the best on fuel..so your figures aren't that far out...

    to help the car breathe a bit more easily, do the airbox mod and either use a K+N filter or fit a new VX airfilter..it just lets it pull air all over the filter, rather than just out of 1/2 of it (poor internal design for flow)..

    How are you calculating that? If your using the fuel comp the box will mess the reading up.

    MIne does about 35 round town atm.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
