    Astra 1.6 giving about 20 MPG?

    Hi, I have a MK4 Vauxhall Astra Club 1.6 8V Y Reg.

    On £20 of fuel at an average of £1.07p per litre petrol, its giving me about 80miles, or 100 motorway miles.
    I'm getting really pissed now!
    Ive just changed my exhaust (back and centre) doesnt do anything.

    I've calculated its giving me about 20 MPG which is REALLY BAD! I might aswell be driving a VXR or something!
    Any ideas?

    Is that a technical term?

    dont know to be honest, i know its due a service, but could it be that? cos how will it improve the MPG by about 10-15 just with a service?

    i don't think it will improve it by that much, but it should make a difference, clean the throttle body and replace the fuel and air filters, maby run some red x thru it, might make a diffence
