    My 2.2's miles to the gallon.

    Was a bit shocked when i worked out my car is only doing about 200 miles to a tank! According to an online MPG calculator im only getting 17.5 miles to the gallon..... And this is with me changing gear at between 2000 and 3000 rpm.

    Anyone getting simlar results in their 2.2's??

    I've got no idea about the thermostat, is it easy to get to cuz i could do the hot water test, i would imagine. In terms of short trips the majority of them are about 5 miles aday with sitting in heaving traffic moving very slow for half an hour, then again moving very slow for say 15 minutes on the way home.

    The longest trips i make weekly say 2-3 times a week, are probz about 8 miles to go get the gf then back to my house back to hers then back again so say 24-30 miles + the 5 i do for the commute.

    In terms of electrics im using, my lights and cd player.

    Theres something wrong there mate, i had a 2.2 coupe and that did about 30mpg and my 2.2 vectra sri did around 28-29mpg, averaged between 300-350 a tank. On 1 long journey i even got 400 miles to a tank and thats in the vectra which is a heavier car.
