    this is mine, done loads of towing. 60 mph everywhere and 19mpg on lpg. Think it is 1200kg empty. When we bought it new the dealer said that if we pulled more than 1500kg laden then any insurance claim for the car or van would be invalidated as the GSi is limited to 1500Kg towing max. Rear axle weight is 75Kg max

    Be Happy

    I used to pull an ABI Marauder 380/2 Gold which weighed near on 1000 kilo's loaded with my Astra H estate.... 1.3 litres of CDTi pulling power joking aside, it never broke a sweat, not once... Brilliant for towing my van.
