    Cool New record for me! VXR drivers, look away now...

    Ok, so I know it's not the largest mileage from one tank on here (that goes to the 950 odd miles from a 2.0 DTi by someone on an economy run trying to see how far he could get..) but it's a new record for me and my 2005 Vectra SRi 1.9 CDTi 150 with 90K on it. Wasn't trying especially to get it, I think it's just the result of a full motorway mileage tank at 70 ish and no major thrashing...

    Oh, and Tescos bog standard fuel...



    I had just filled it back up, and it took 61 litres. Which is about the size of the tank... Range counter reckoned I had 9 miles left in it...



    And this was said range counter immediately afterwards...



    Where's _ZS_...? He normally has something to say about the CDTi...

    I was brave - the fuel light was flashing 695 miles and I passed a petrol station... Wanted to break the 700 mile mark and the fuel 10 miles down the road was 6p a litre cheaper...

    To be honest, I the claim of the mileage he could get out of the 1.8 doesn't bother me - I don't see it as impossible and he'd have no reason to make it up. It was his whole attitude to anything diesel that annoyed me...

    haha!

    I found his anti-diesel comments amusing too. He had a 1.9 Astra (I used to see his comments on AON too) and he used to buzz off it - then as soon as he got a petrol, he was so anti-1.9 it was unreal!
