Last time i fuelled up i did so after using 1/4 tank on town driving, 30mph zones, traffic jams etc & got 30.75mpg (i've a 51 plate 1.8 SRI that's covered 111k but appears to have F.S.H.)
Just done my first full tank.
Driving was quite reserved with no real blasts
Was mainly 6 mile trips to work in 50/60mph zones
Maybe 1/4 of the distance covered was town driving in 20-40mph zones
No real jams.
Fuel light came on today, covered about 7 mile & then fuelled up. All in all i did 327.7 miles which worked out at 33.67mpg
An improvement, but also a disappointment if i'm honest. I don't know how reserved i've got to be to get the 35/37mpg quoted on various sites. I can't see how i could be any more reserved.
I'm carrying a few fault codes...
If they're likely to have anything to do with itP0170 = Lean exhaust or rich exhaust. This is the air fuel ratio, which could be too rich or too lean.
P0704 = Clutch switch input circuit, high input.
P1555 = Total position sensor, load signal, not plausible with engine load.
Plus i noticed one tyre was a bit soft the other day, so don't know how much of a difference that'll have played as well.
£44 after 2 weeks lol. I miss the diesel in a way lol
Anywho, last time, i got questioned on how i worked out mpg, so here's a shot....
A, B, C, E should be obvious
D = pence per litre
F = total miles covered
G = litres added
H = mpg
