    Fuel consumption ?

    Out of interest, whats the average fuel consumption that everyone is getting.

    Last winter with no mods about 27.5 mpg

    This winter CS 3 + derestrited AFM about 25 mpg !

    I noticed a definate increase in consumption since derestricting the AFM.
    Courtenay Astra Coupe Turbo: 281 bhp & 273 lb ft torgue.

    All I know is that I get about 230 miles out of £30 of Optimax (which is bought from an expensive filling station on the A50).

    the most i got was about 350 miles on 30 odd squid from tesco, mostly that was on the A1M and the fuel light was flashing well before i could get to a filling station (i know a big no no, slap wrist) anyway 350 odd was pretty cool i thought.

    Hello,

    So far I've managed from 8.4 to 9.8 miles on a litre of petrol (that's about 38.5 to 44.7 miles per gallon).

    Ciao,

    Between 27 and 32 mpg, depending on how quick I drive that day.

    Turbos never going to be good - especially after a phase upgrade
