    Fuel Consumption

    Alright lads/ladies

    Whats your fuel consumption like on your Gs?

    Put it in a table as below:

    Engine: 1.6 16v

    For 10 85ish miles

    For 20 180ish miles

    For 25 220ish miles

    Full tank 290ish miles

    Comments:

    My fuel consumption is alright, depending on how I drive, If Im putting my foot down, you can sit and watch the fuel dial move with the rev counter.

    On motorways, I seem to get the same kind of miles as I do around town.

    Plus my car idles a bit bad at lights.

    Gees I am not the slowest driver around and do a combination of sitting in lights, town driving and zipping along the motorway in 1.6 16v

    On full tank I get on average 330-350 miles before it really needs fuel.

    Driving long distance tomorrow with a full load so will see how it does.
