    Fuel Consumption

    Hi all, Iv recently bought an Astra 1.6 8v on a Y reg... I love it but the only thing thats bugging me is its fuel consumption.
    Even when driving conservativly (5th everywhere) im only getting 33ish mpg.

    Whats everyone elses like? and is there anyway i can improve this?

    Thanks Sean.

    Could well be about right, I just about manage 40mpg driving nicely on a-roads, so add in town driving and it'll drop down towards 30mpg. That's on a 1.6 16v but I doubt there's much difference.

    A full service (oil, filters, plugs) will possibly help a little.
