    Zafira economy

    Just got back from a long weekend in North Wales and have got to say I am suprised how well the Bus coped on the long journey. It took two full tanks granted but managed to average 36mpg over the whole weekend. The biggest suprise of all though was the range covered from a full tank on the way home. From Bangor (various journeys) to Anglesey (sp) to home in SE London! The best I could ever manage on my old z20let was around 300 miles to the tank. But now the new z20leh has been fitted the car seems to go much further than it ever did before.

    So.. full tank = 395 MILES!
