    Vehicle : Vauxhall Vectra SRI XPII



    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 68K

    Default 2.2 DTI SRi MPG?

    Ive searched the net and the forum, but what kinda mileage can i expect from my new vectra, 2.2 Sri, DTI, regular services 28k on clock, 03 plate.

    Plus, is there anything you can do to assist in more MPG? as i have said i have never driven a diesel really aprt from at work, but the fuel level doesnt bother me there. I have heard a few tips such as get into he highest gear possible?

    One hting i heard on a Vectra B forum, they put a small amount of acetone in their petrol cars to increase MPG, so was wondering if theres anything like this too? for diesels?

    Thanks, andy

    I'd estimate between 35 and 40mpg
    Best efficiency is by keeping low revs, change up gear at about 2000rpm

    no thats far too low.....

    I got a 2.2 dti sxi with 96k on the clock and i get anything between 505 - 562 miles before the red light comnes on.

    normally about 57lts to fill from red light....

    I drive a lot at 60 plus, the best thing I have found is to change from 3rd to 5th when you get to about 40-45mph. it made a big difference.

    the engine has enough torque to pull it, I also use the cruise control a lot - stops you giving it too much

    yeah they do - it hasn't been out long though.

    its got a black cover - best bet is halfords - then you dont have to pay for postage.
