    what year is it? X16SZR engine? if so i'm in the same boat mate, roughly the same around town, apparently its highly due to the lower performance of the engine compared to the weight of the car or that is atleast a factor assuming nothing is wrong with the car(s) (yours and mine)

    Yeah tell me about it...
    But obviously the right foot usage has changed as its faster lol..

    I have:
    Lightened flywheel
    Uprated VXR Clutch
    VXR turbo
    Regal stage 3 map
    Lower Mounted Intercooler
    Dump valve
    Milltek catback exhaust
    A heavy foot?

    Haha...

    But on a journey i can get about 40mpg if im kind too it

    Do you drive hard on the stated miles you get to a tank?

    I had the same engine in my old astra, and i put the poor fuel economy down to me having to have a heavy right foot to get the car to move at a decent pace. Probably why i ended up blowing the head gasket lol
