hi guys, had a good look at the threads to see if anyone has posted about mpg, but nothing exactly matches. hope you can advise.
i've had a 51 plate astravan 1.7dti for 2 weeks now, replaced my 206 gti. one of the reasons for the new vehicle, apart from being a drummer and drums don't fit very well in a 206 (!), is i was hoping to get better fuel economy. i am getting better mpg than my gti, but not what i'd hoped.
upon reading an ad on ebay for the same van as mine the guy stated that he gets 500 + miles from a full tank. i'm lucky to get 300 from mine, i do town and motorway driving, but 90 percent of the week the van is totally empty. (i may have a slighlty heavy foot from owning a gti!)
is 300 on a full tank about right and the guy on t'bay was a bit over zealous with his advert? or do i have a prob? cheers. matt
