    petrol consumption...

    i know it get asked alot, but recently mine has seemed really cr@p, i filled up on the 31st Jan with £35 of normal morrisons, 1.02 a litre, only just done 180 miles and ive had to fill up again, does that seem rubbish or not.

    Before anyone starts, i have been driving slowly over the last week to see if it makes a difference.

    full tank = 180 miles ? then yes that is awful, thats 16mpg isnt it?

    but £35 at £1.02 is only 34 litres which is 7.47 gallons which is 24mpg which isnt as bad, espeically if you filled up a little earlier than needed which could have been 25-30 mpg which is about right,
