    Default MPG?

    Hi everyone. My 1.8 SRI is eating petrol. Only getting 22 - 24 miles per gallon knocking about. What should it be doing? What does everyone else get?

    What type of driving do you normally do?

    What age and mileage is yours? plus, when was it last serviced?

    I do a real variety of trips in my 1.8 estate and usually average 34-36mpg

    Its a 1.8 SRI. 06 plate. Was serviced a month ago by vauxhall and done 15000 miles. I dont drive stupidly and have only used it for short journeys so far.

    Well, short journeys won't be helping you but its interesting that you probably have the VVTI engine - I've heard a few people say they're not as economical as the older lump like mine.

    Try giving it a good long run and see what happens with the figures.

    With 15k on the clock it should be loosened up by now.
