    How many miles to a full tank? Astra G - 1.6 16v SXi

    Just wondering as I think my car is using more fuel than it should.
    I don't know how everybody works out there MPG etc. But I've just filled my car right to the top £51.46 and reset the clock
    Driving the car how I normally drive which is sensible
    Roughly how many miles should I be expecting?
    Cheers!

    I'd imagine around the 350 to 400 mile mark closer to the 400!

    sure something like this has been covered before.. a filled the coupe with £54.00 showing full on gauge, drove to inverurie aberdeen to drop the girlfriend at her sisters and drove right back and still had over quater of tank left!.. drove sencible there and mabey ton now n again back as it was late and covered 380mile trip.

    Is your motor due a service? change the fuel filter at the weekend and retake note.?.

    funny you should mention service...
    I had it serviced a week ago
    Like I said, I 'think' its using too much fuel, might just be in my head, but I thought at least if i top it, and monitor the miles I can determine whether or not its drinking too much fuel

    I'm not sure how to work it out.
    But i was bone dry the other night. Put £20 in, and I'm sure I only got about 86 miles. I didn't do much driving before I had to fill up again put it that way.

    use that for MPG calc.

    I get about 350-400 on mine. Depends on weather, driving, etc. I mainly do town driving with the occasional motorway jaunt. Sometimes get a bit more.

    Well I used to get about 80 odd miles in my 2.0 SRi, and that works out at roughly 40 - ISH maybe slightly less, so using that means your averaging 20 ish mpg which is terrible for the car. Not sure what could be causing it.

    Depends on how/where you drive. I've got a 1.8 auto estate and get around 420 miles to a full tank.
