    The most I've ever got is 320 miles to a tank, the least I've got is 180.

    I average about 220.

    I've been trying to drive 'smarter' with my current tankfull.....

    Basically trying to not go over 3000 revs, except on motorways when I never reach 4000.
    It's definately made a difference.....currently on 320ish
    with no petrol light on (not much left though).

    Just a 1.6 16v...but the principle is the same.

    Very hard to get used to taking it easy, but I just turn on the chill out tunes and think like an old man !

    Anyone concerned about their consumption....try it...no more than 4000 revs in any gear.

    old git, so your the one in front of the caravans holding everyone up eh

    I hope there wont be any 'smart' driving when the VXR turns up!!!

    I can get about 335 to a tank, but that is a 3 litre straight 6, which weighs about 9 tonnes

    Have never really checked how many miles mine does on a fuel tank, but driving home with the cruise control on the other day, the trip computer told me I was doing 46 mpg for most of the journey, thats fantastic for a 2.0 16v Turbo engine, I was well chuffed
