    MPG 08 plate astra club

    I have recently bought an 08 plate astra 1.4. I think the rv counter goes rather high and am getting about 37mpg. Is that normal???

    most of the Astra range is geared on the high side to help with acceleration and performance, try a Vectra (way too low gearing) then you will understand why the Astra is as it is. 37mpg is about right for the 1.4 and yours is still fairly new so will settle further as it all beds in

    dont worry how high your rev counter goes,its how many revs you use that count,my speedo goes to 160mph but i tend to stay below 70 mph ish.
