    Default Miles per tank.. Real mpg?

    Evening guys,

    So as of last night my partner and her friend decided we are going to Nürburing instead of Scotland this year for our annual camping trip.

    I trying to work out how much it's going to cost to get a vxr there and back, 700 miles near enough.
    So how many miles do you get to a tank?
    How much to fill a tank?
    And lastly what is your average and best mpg?

    I look forward to the answers my bank account doesn't 😂
    Cheers
    Michael

    Mine varies wildly.

    I reset trip#2 when I bought the car near 5k ago. Currently on 24.8mpg. Which is pretty poor for a modern hot hatch.

    I’ve seen as low as 210 miles from a rank, but that is 90% short journeys. I regularly commute into London on longer average speed journeys at 40/50/60 and a little blast on the Mway at higher speeds and it usually hovers around 27-29

    70 seems to be more economical than any other speed for me, but yet to see above 30.

    I think about 3 -4 tank fulls, when I went before. How are you going to drive once you get to the German border?
    Be aware of the speed camera on the E40 going to Brussels.

    What I mean is Belgium speed limit is 120kph, Germany has a recommended speed limit of 130kph. So you will be able to go a bit faster than in this country. So your fuel consumption will drop.

    Ahhh right... Thanks. See I have so much to learn between now and going.

    Are you going by ferry or tunnel ?
    The R0 , Brussels ring road, is the same as the M25. If you get the wrong time of day.
    What time of year are you planning on ?
    The forests are great for walking in, if your not going for the track.

    Depending on when you go, there might be a race on at the ring, so there will be more people about.
    Last time I went on the train, I went in the over height carriages with the buses and vans, as the floor is wider and you dont catch the wheel rims. As in the car carriages the track is narrow and you can catch your rims on the steel edgeing.
