    fuel consumption

    hi, i have just bought a 1.4 astra gls n reg, i bought it just to get me backwards and forwards to work, iam getting about 28 miles out of a tenner, not sure how good the consumption should be, but thought it would be a bit better than that. does anyone know what the problem may be,or if this is normal. thanks

    Does it actually run out after 28 miles or does the gauge go down to 0 after 28 miles?

    Could be a faulty gauge or sender unit.

    Give it a self service, change the oil and filters, shouldnt cost you much either.


    and fill it right up, and see what you can get from a whole tank!
