    Exclamation fuel prob

    hello, im not sure if there something wrong with my 52 plate 1.8 vectra, i seem to get thro loads of fuel! i seem to get 125miles of half a tank, i know fuel has gone up in price but im using loads im driving eratically either, im putting fuel in all the time.

    The other week a i had 1/4 of atank of fuel so i filled up with £10, any way when i left the petrol station the fuel gauge was on empty with the low fuel light on??? confusing, it seemed to sort its self out in the end, perhapes it running to fast or a problem with the ful gauge? any ideas - i would be v grateful

    I usually get between 185 - 200 miles to a half tank, combination of town and motorway and thats a 2.2, sounds like something not right...

    The gauge might be reading wrong, you need to fill right up, that will sort out a sticky sender, do 50 miles fill back up again, devide roughly by £4.20p, so if it takes another tenner you will be getting roughly 23 mpg.

    Does she stink at the exhaust?

    If so could be either the Lambda sensor, or the airflow meter

    Also clean out the air/idle valve, if your not sure how ask here and one of the good chaps with a petrol model might do a how to for you, it's a simple job but Vx will charge nearly a £100 to do it for you.
