Ive got a Mk4 Astra hatch 5 door 1.4 16v.
I filled it to the brim a couple weeks ago. The petrol light is now flashing and ive done 335 miles. Isnt this pretty poor economy? Most of my journeys have either been 2.5 miles long or 15 miles long, rarely any longer than that. Mostly straight main roads with some waiting at traffic lights (the mega slow ones for roadworks) etc etc. Some journeys its late at night so i do 70-80 (i know i shouldnt) dont know how this effects economy.
As far as weight is concerned its normally me on my own or with a passenger, i have a sub in the boot but other than that its standard so not too heavy.
I might try driving 50mph everywhere but this might annoy other drivers. The service indicator hasnt showed up so cant need a service yet, think July was the last one.
Any help? As i think this works out at about 32mpg the way im driving it.
