    Just depends how you drive mate I guess haha. If you drive like a fairy you'll get 45 with gentle driving.

    Im driving gentle with it and still cant get above 37. I pray that it gets better after I get some miles on it. Got around 500 so praying it can at least get up to 45 gentle and 37 when hammering it!

    Define 'driving it gently'.

    During the first 5-10 minutes of a journey a car will be burning twice as much fuel while it warms up the engine so if you're making lots of short journeys you will get poor mpg and a 1.0T might have been a better choice if you make short journeys/city driving and mpg is important.

    37mpg probably isn't far off what I would expect for either city commuting or for cruising at 70-80mph on the motorway.
    If you cruised at 50-odd mph with the lorries you might get as much as 50mpg.
    Insignia Elite 2.8T (2012), Suzuki Swift Sport 1.6 (2016).

    There are so many factors that will alter your mpg. Even moving the pedal slightly will make a surprising difference and the reason why a steady throttle position on a motorway will usually give you better economy. fuel type and tyre pressures are other big factors.
    I've found that the brand of fuel can make a big difference and affects some models more than others. The best fuel that I've found for power, running and ecomomy is Asda (surprisingly) and is on a par with Tesco Momentum. When I've used Sainsbury's, the mpg really drops off.
    Overall I'm getting about 38-40 combined and 25 urban for a corsa vxr.

    I don't do many short journeys. Do about 50 miles a day for work and that consists of motorway, back roads and city driving. I actually reset my metre this morning before work and it's gone up to 40 mpg. It's slowly going up MPG the more I drive it.

    I am probs seeing a difference because I come from a 1.2 Energy/

    I think I am going to try Tesco Momentum for my next tank. Have been using unleaded Jet for the past 2 refills.

    To get a correct 'average' mpg, you need to calculate it between refills and not use a trip computer etc, these are full of errors.
