16-18mpg around town tescos 99ron. i seem to get the same on shell v-power.
MY99 UK modified. was much the same before having the car powered up, but now when i floor it you really can watch the fuel needle plummit.
i've been convinced for 4 years now that there's a leak somewhere on my fuel tank. lol

18-20 on my daily commute/round town anything from and 30 Mpg is possible on highway provided i go no more than 60 Mph. At a more realistic speed of 70 Mph I'll get no more than 25 Mpg. I do have the close ratio box though and makes a huge diffrence.

Ha ha ha, this is great. I love it when we al start talking petrol. Don't worry mate, accept the MPG's. I'm getting about 18-22 too.
Maybe we should start a support group ?

Re: wots your average mpg

My sti ppp is about 16-19 mpg around town and the most ever achieved on a run taking it easy was 24 but normally on a run 22mpg, totally depressing with the cost of fuel but performance doesn't come cheap.................. well thats what I keep telling myself anyway..........

Re: wots your average mpg

i get around town about 25/30 on the motorway i get 30/35

the turbo boosts quite high on mine (4000 rpm) so in fifth i can cruise at 90 without having the turbo really spooling up

in my last bug (just exhaust & panel filter upgrade 255 bhp) i was lucky to get 28 on the m/way

Re: wots your average mpg

I HAVE NEVER GOT MUCH MORE THAN 25MPG IN MY SAPPHIRE COSWORTH SO NOT EXPECTING GET MUCH FROM ME WRX JUST WANTED TO COMPARE WHAT IAM GETTING TO WHAT YOU LOT GET.

HAS ANYBODY SEEN THEM SO CALLED FUEL SAVERS GOING ABOUT. BASICALLY A MAGNET CONNECTED TO THE FUEL SUPPLY AND CHANGES THE WHY THE FUEL ENTERS THE INJECTORS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. IAM NOT CONVINCED BUT ANYTHING COULD BE WORTH A GO.
