Fuel consumption

Was wondering if anyone knows what type of mpg I will get out of a 05 wrx sti prodrive just traded my standard wrx in for it ???? I do loads of miles a week and that was costing me a fortune I know it depend on how you drive but I will take it easy going into work and play on weekends!!!!!. Also what difference would running it on standard fuel make and would it do any damage???

Only run on super-unleaded.

Well I think you can answer the mpg question yourself.... It won't be better than your last scooby

What is standard fuel???

Try Shell

If you are conservative and easy on the pedal then you could get around 25 mpg but it really depends n how you drive. I can get anything from 15 mpg to 33 mpg

You obviously will get more on a run down the motorway at around 60mph

You could consider buying a 1yr old little diesel for the high mileage stuff and keep the toy for the weekend, no worries about fuel economy then !

Well got the car Around the doors having a little blast was getting 19-20 mpg but on a run up to scotland taking it easy most of the way got 24 mpg so it's not to bad(most of my miles are on runs and was getting 27 on my WRX). Love the car and it's amazing the difference between the standard WRX, Still think getting a nail for 500 is a good option as I don't want to put to many miles on it and it will save me some money on juice, will wait a bit though want to have some fun with it first.

Like you said mate, its hard to say regarding your MPG becasue we all drive differently and we all carry different loads in the car etc. That said, expect about 22 mpg max. Running the car on standard fuel will be fine if its a UK model, however, if you are going to be driving it really hard, the higher-octane rated V-Power or similair is recommended. This will help limit detonation when working the car hard and help preserve your engine.
