Re: mpg fuel cost

Fill it and you can watch miles to a tank. That way you can watch the cost of the tank escalate but your mileage should always be roughly the same. My new age normally does 300 or slightly more to a tank. The last coupe of weeks has been worse with the car idling while I defrosted it and travelling at a lower average speed in snow and using heater an ac more often.

My 03 normally cost around 70 on 97ron super. Unfortunately it's few and far between over here in Ireland and we have no 99 at all.

Re: mpg fuel cost

Mine has got better after sorting a few breathing mods out such as decat, exhaust and induction kit and remap. I don't drive it like a nun but alot of the time my 3yr old is in and my driving is always within the speed limits then. When I'm on my own I'd say the mpg is alot worse!!

Re: mpg fuel cost

Same size as yours - the 03 should be the same as 05. The highest I've ever put in was 75.

Re: mpg fuel cost

I used to do nearly a 60 mile round trip to work and back. Could get 300 miles to a tank with a bit of effort - filling it up every week. Now the car's doing less than 100 miles per month, usually very short journeys, and fuel economy is waaaay down. Just the nature of the beast - but worth it.

Re: mpg fuel cost

a bit sad i know, but done some maths,

30 quids worth of fuel at 1.28 p/l = 23.4375 ltrs

23.4375 ltrs = 5.156 gals

125 miles out of 5.156 gals = 24.244 mpg


i'd be over the moon if i was getting that on my daily run!!!

So does a remap help mpg?

Remaps do help and they make the car more fun too

Re: mpg fuel cost

thats good to no. might be getting mine done in the near future. just a quick question because i read somewhere that in 2011 having a remapped car will fail and MOT is this true? the thing is how would an MOT tester find out about a remapped car anyway? many thanks guys Ben

Sounds like a rumour to me it's not really detectable.
