    1.6 sxi MPG?

    Hi,
    Just a quick one, I don't think I am getting very good MPG... to a full tank I get about 350-380 miles? I don't do very small trips, don't over rev or anything... any ideas on whether this is ok? Or is this too low?

    i don't run it down under 1/4 tank.. so this will probably change things..


    cheers.

    Hi m8 what does the computer say your avg mpg is. Only fill the tank to halfway as the extra weight will have a big effect on your mpg return

    Have been looking into the consumption of the 1.6 MK5. Ash's Club seems to guzzle the fuel, not matter how you drive it. Have been looking on here and on AON and it appears the 1.6 in general tends to be a big fuel guzzler.

    My 1.4 SXi does approx 350 to a tank, so yeah I would say your 350-380 is good for a 1.6. As I said, as normally gets 300 from a tank on her 1.6 club.
