    1.8 Astra coupe - MPG question?

    Evening all,

    My astra coupe is taking £47 worth of fuel and only returning 300 - 315 miles, how big is the tank on my coupe and what does that work out at, for example parkers say my car should do 36 mpg!

    Thanks

    the 1.8 is a very thirsty engine! lol
    My turbo returns exactly the same MPG as my mates 1.8 did, only mine is faster (and more to insure), 1.8's not the best engine in my opinion, but what you're saying in your thread in about right fella.
    I'm after another Coupe Turbo

    Wait, so for £10 fuel you do around 60 miles? Is this correct?

    My 280 bhp turbo does 31 mpg....that's about 3000 miles to £40 (ish)
    of super unleaded.

    A friend's 1.6 Megan CC only does 34 mpg.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
