    I've got an auto 160 CDTI and average around 38 mix of A roads and urban. My mate has same car as your's and is sitting on 48 mpg average but with a lot of motorway driving. 30 is low even for urban driving. Are you thrashing it or not changing up quick enough? My dad has a habit of sitting in 3rd at 35-40 mph instead of bumping it up the gears?

    As Andy says 265 for ?40 indicates mid 40's mpg

    I get 35-60 with 35 being all town driving, 30 may be right for v. short journeys ie 2.5 mile trips - but if you do this a lot you may end up with dpf issues.

    Graemel41, on Jun 19 2012, 08:58 PM, said:I'm only going by what the average MPG reading says. Everytime I reset the computer it changes from the 30.2 MPG to now 35.6 MPG. Does the computer not reset to zero. My astra twintop reset to zero. Now i'm even more confused.


    Unlike the Astra when you reset the av. mpg it defaults to something like 35.4 or 35.6.

    Obviously the ?40/265 miles range thing is dependant on what was already in the tank before filling, but if your doing 2.5 mile trips i wouldn't be surprised at 30 mpg - the engine isn't even getting up to temp at his distance.

    I'm driving down to Manchester on Saturday and brimmed the tank today from 34 to empty. Took ?85.78. That's ?9 cheaper than when I last brimmed it from near empty. Diesel has come down and it was 130.7 a litre. Showing 555 range but I'm expecting much more than that once I hit the motorway!

    Was that 130.7 using a supermarket voucher?

    Ain't seen it any lower than 135.9 in/around Paisley area.

    No voucher. Asda in Blantyre next to where I teach has it at 130.7. Local tesco in Bellshill has it at 131.5. Think it will come down a lot more over the next few weeks. I can see 120-125 a litre within the month of July. A barrell is at a 18 month low!!
