    Vehicle : Opel Signum

    Trim : Sport

    Engine : 3.0 CDTI

    Year : 12/03

    Default Fuel consumption record?

    Refuelled the CDTi, resetted the trip computer and set off. Nice smooth straight road ahead, so decided to try and drive very slowly (within the speed limit). After what felt like a year the car had finally used 1L of fuel and the distance I covered was astonishing.

    24.5km


    4.08163265 l/100km = 69.2078581 miles per Imperial gallon

    Opinions about this guys?
