    too bad at all I think! And that's all from 1 tank of fuel - was driving 75ish with CC for most of the journey, with the odd burst of power when overtaking... And some minor traffic on the M6 as expected.







    That is not bad at all. When you got back was the needle in the fuel red zone or just above?

      Hi Guys,



      I'm just back from holiday and was like ?500 cheaper to fly from Manchester airport than Glasgow so of course I took that option. Even with petrol and parking costs it's still a massive saving.



      Anyway... I was quite impressed with what I got from the VXR. 4 passengers with a boot full of heavy suitcases....

      That's more than I'm getting on short journeys with my 160.

        Are you heavy footed by any chance? Less than 38mpg is appalling for a diesel. I use to get 40+ on my vec c diesel short journeys.
