  • Hoiw much....

    How much is it costing you all to fill your tank from empty these days?

    Want to get a VXR later on this year but want to get an idea of the petrol costs to see if I can afford it.....

    Cheers people.

    The question is what mpg does it get. The cost to fill a 50 litre petrol tank will be the same whether you drive a Prius or a Lamborghini. A litre is a litre

    When I had the astra I was getting, on average, about 26mpg with mixed driving styles so a tank lasted 240-300 miles I would say. My insignia vxr.... Hmmm, 21-24mpg on average (24 is with real careful, considerate driving though but I have had 28/29 out of it on long motorway runs). It costs £85-£95 to fill up and I see about 320ish miles out of it. Not pleasant

          This driving with a heavy foot or taking it fairly easy?

              costs me about £70 to fill from empty with T99 which lasts me 300 to 320 miles. This is steady everyday driving, no motorway

                      Thats really good jay, especially with no motorway driving. I cant get anywhere near that driving steady.

                      Although saying that i tend to fill up as soon as the petrol light comes on, by which point ive done around 250miles. I dont trust the gauge, seems abit eratic, lol.

                        This is what I like to hear, If i do get a VXR I will want to be getting 300 at least as it will be my car that I use for work and everything else.

                        Don't get me wrong, I will still have the odd play in it too......

                            I could have re-worded that better, what I mean is that when im using it in the week I want to be able to get a good MPG....but yeah, I understand it will drink fuel for fun when the 2 tonne foot comes out!
