    MPG on 1.8 3dr SRI XP MK5

    Hi all

    Just wondering what MPG people are getting on there 3dr 1.8 SRI's and whether mine is returning about right. I dont drive mine fast and rarely rev above 3500-4000 and i am getting 28mpg on the computer.

    Cheers

    ah cheers for that mate. it don't half eat the fuel, even V-Power that I use.

    What mods have you done to get more from the engine? I don't want to spend much though.
