    Astra 1.6 Petrol - Full Tank ? 240 Miles Max

    Hi,

    Ive topped up my Astra 1.6 51 8v (Plate) With Around £55 Petrol, the needle went all the way to the top and past the last line.

    Eitherway I mostly do city driving, I only get around 240 Miles on a full tank of Petrol ? The car has done around 104,000 miles on the clock.

    Its going for a service soon, Im planning on going to the Vauxhall dealership for servicing, maybe they can check it out the best they can.

    Does anyone have any idea if 240 miles on a full tank is normal on this car ive read that some people hit around 300 easily or sometimes more.

    I drive mostly around 40mph everywhere.

    P.s the car is a Manual drive

    35 mpg from 1.6 8v auto

    I get 330-340 miles from full tank to the fuel light coming on normally with mostly A-road driving in my 1.6 8v auto.
    Have been keeping fuel and mileage figures and works out 35 mpg average so far. I'm used to diesel that got 50+ mpg so it seems pretty bad to me but I think it is ok for a petrol auto in reality.
