Been working out my fuel comsumption lately and havent been that impressed im gettin between 32-37MPG its only a 1.2 8v though, my mum's 307 1.6 is averaging that, but it is a newer car though. Is this normal? ino its a 9 year old car but i was expecting around 40, its not neglected either i only serviced it about 2 months ago. Is there any way to improve it, like use engine cleaner and/or clean the sensors etc, or should i just expect this.

Post up your's people i want to know what your gettin? :p

its 4.5 litres to a Gallon by the way and think normal corsa tank is 40 litres

I get 65-70 miles off £10 if I'm lucky. Not sure how many mpg that is though.

I put £20 in mine on thursday evening, and I just had to put another £20 in earlier, so thats roughly £20 in 4 days, kind of scary but thats good for me! I've been driving much less aggressively the last week or so to see how much difference it makes, I reckon I could make £30 last a week like this, whereas I usually put about £50 maybe more in a week.

depends what fuel i use, normal unleaded gets me around 230-250 miles out of a tank without thrashing it, bp ultimate (runs on this all the time now) gets me roughly 300 miles and thats with a thrash now and then lol.

Hi everybody, i have a 98 1.0 12v and get 54 mpg:thumbs_up: :D :driver:
theres always one...

Only thing that puts me off the optimax stuff is the price. It's shocking.
