Fuel consumption?

I was wondering how many miles most people are getting to a full tank of super unleaded? i am going to be going to visit friends in manchester in a month or so so trying to get an idea roughly how much the fuel will be to get there and back as its a 500 mile round trip. cheers Rich/

Re: Fuel consumption?

check out my thread from a few weeks ago...

Long Old Drive!

its all down to how much self control you have...you could see 40mpg if you were really good...

I usually get around 19mpg for my weekly drive (so thats normal to hard driving)

Tbh, I'd budget for 1 and a half to 2 full tanks. My car never gets more than 250 Miles to a tank on a run. Round town I'm lucky to see 150 miles.

Re: Fuel consumption?

thanks for the replies , i think mines around the 22mpg mark well put it this way i filled her up yesterday and i have been taking friends and family members out in it so as you can imagine i've been pushing it pretty hard plus some motorway driving and i've got 115 miles out of half a tank which i didn't think was too bad tbh.

Re: Fuel consumption?

well every week I fill up 30 litres of super and get between 120 and 150 miles (note the mileage when the light comes on and then go fill up straight away)

so thats between 18mpg and 22mpg
