    I did well with mine this weekend. Went on a road trip from wigan to southend into london and back, got to 360 miles with 69 miles left on the miles to empty then decide to fill up with 39.9 mpg and that was in a mk4 gsi.

    Averaged 33mpg from my ACT in last 6500miles. Thats with a bit of everything kind of driving, but mainly driving like a granny. I'd like to see anyone beat that in an ACT! lol. And i dont mean in last 10 miles!

    Went up to peak district other day and left with 247 miles left in tank according to computer and arrived with 300 left in tank. lol.
    For free hugs PM me.

    I get just over 400 miles out of every tank in my mk4 1.8 estate auto (which i'm very happy with!). This is mainly high speed driving with a/c turned on all the time.

    Recently i've been hitting the 35-37mpg marker on Shell V Power.

    Just done 355.6 miles which got me 35.23mpg.


    Most miles i've done off a tank was 360.1

    Most mpg return i've got was 41.16 with a good bit of motorway driving. Have had a 39 & some 38s.

    Lowest mpg was 30.73mpg off of Texaco premium. Car ran like shit.

    Car is a Z18XE

    I went for a run from Oswestry (Shropshire) to Sadberge ( Darling) with a little bit of running around there, roughly 417 miles and got an average of 64.6mpg out of my 1.7 turbo diesel mk3 doing 70 most of the way (A5,M56,M6.M60,M62,M1,A1M)
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!
