    turbo mpg

    I knwo its been covered 1000 times but doign a search for "turbo mpg" comes up with posts from 2004 lol,

    ive been considering changing my zafira for a sri-t or coupe turbo for some time as i have always wanted one and after sellign my bike i need something to give me some extra thrills after a hard day at work but at the same time some thing i can get my growin family in,

    am i right in thinking if i drive it sensible i should get about 30mpg out of it considering my daily run is about 1 mile to the dual carriage way (60 limit) then 2 islands and onto the motorway for 15miles and then a small bit of a run in town at 30 mph limits?

    Yeah my trip comp is always around the high 29's low 30's with combined driving. But after i filled it up, i reset it when i was on my way to my last race and when i got there i had an average mpg of 34 or 35.. Depends on what ratio of lead to bone you have in your foot!!

    must be something wrong with the way i drive or the way my cars running, i get an average of between 20 - 22 around town and occasionaly in the 24's. On the motorway using cruise control at about 70 to 80 mph it was showing around the 34 mark

    I get 23 mpg around town and maximum of 35 on the motorway but that all depends on speed. I've had 22-25s on motorways but ... thats another story
    The only way to be 100% certain that work has been done properly is to do it yourself.
