    Hi there. I don,t know much about diesels. But I can get 25/26 mpg out of my 3.2 V6 petrol if I take it steady. Someone with a 1.9 like yours will soon put us in the picture. Maybe yours is cleaning it,s DPF valve at the moment???.

    Same engine as you mate. Should be a lot more than that. Mid 30's minimum even for town use. I'm averaging 42 and that's low for this engine.

    Welcome to Vectra-C.' BTW

    Auto around town sounds about right for that, if you take it on a long motorway run and cruise at 70 you should be in the 40's easily....

    Mine is the auto too and it is quite thirsty aronud the town and if pushed hard, but on a nice cruise its good. I recently went to Beaumaris on Anglesy and it was a straight run there and a stop at Conwy on the way back and I only used quater of a tank, and I dont hang around
