    1.6SXI owners - what's your MPG?

    What MPG do you guys see who own 1.6 sxi's
    Just wondering, I don't really boot it alot so hoping for 400miles to a tank

    Also let me know how many miles you get from a full tank to fuel light.

    Cheers!

    400 is achievable on this car, but you have to be pretty nice. On the rare occasion I drive on petrol I can manage 350-380.

    Well mines just the 1.6 16v sxi with irmscher back box
    Like I said atm I've done 190 miles and on half tank. Would like 400 to a tank. My previous car was getting 650 to a tank!! Diesel ftw!

    Does anyone know the optimum revs to change at for best mpg? Or best speed/revs to sit at to obtain the highest mpg?

    I'm lucky to get 350 miles before the fuel light is on

    I normally change gear between 3000 and 6000 rpm (which is why my fuel economy sucks!)

    Same as Matt, 350 ish if I'm lucky (which I rarely am ). The only reason I bought a 1.6 is because it was all I could insure at the time. Other than that I REALLY don't know why people buy them.. They drink fuel like nobodys business. They also seem to carry this rather annoyingly inaccurate description of "it's a 'sporty' 1.6" which is complete shite as they can just keep up with a 1.2 corsa on a good day.

    well I'm only 19 at the moment paying 800 a year insurance through vauxhall.
    I got my car for free as my dad had loads of work and money spent on it and bought a Clio so was time to let my saxo goto the scrappers and upgrade abit.

    I think I'll achieve between 350 and 400
    I hope which I'm guessing will be really good by the sounds of it

    I get around 24-26 mpg in my car, driving in Glasgow.

    Looking to change it at earliest practical opportunity.
