    Depends on what sort of driving you do. Is it mainly town or motorway? But of both etc.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    What are you getting at the moment then? I woulkd have thought 350-400 per tank full, maybe less. Not 100% sure but I think thats what I got from my astra with the same engine, although that is a lighter car!

    Doesn't sound too bad. Its a heavy car doing short journeys. Hopefully another 1.8 owner will be alone shortly

    I think it depends on the style of driving also, I get more milage than my missus, mind you I am sure she is determined to burn out my clutch! defo a lot more milage on a good steady motorway run.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    I use to have a 1.8 Active (pre-facelift) non-VVT. I use to get about 27mpg mixed driving. At silly speeds the 1.8 will drink petrol like no-one's business and round town gets nowhere near the urban figure. I'd say anywhere approaching 200mpg for half a tank would be a result.
