                  i wish i got that out of mine, driving sensibly the most i will get is 260-280 max, the best i ever had was 320! that was motorway driving tho.

                    still on the subject of fuel but a slight change.... has any 1 noticed since the price dropped you dont seem to get as many miles??? its not just me ,heard a few people say they think they dont seem to be getting as many miles as before.

                    im averaging 24.1 mpg, driving normally with the odd little burst.

                        i was at 28 and now at 19 - i have also changed from Vpower to T99 this time around so that could also be it.

                        Back to V Power for me - tesco can keep their fuel as far as i am concerned.

                          thanks for all the replys...sounds like they are pretty good on fuel then?does it make a big difference if you use normal unleaded or super?

                            When i first got the car i ran it on normal unleaded (shell) for a few months, but am now running on shell v power, cant really see much difference at all in mpg. but still prefer paying extra as its better for a turbo car.

                            I usually got about 300-350 miles a tank (30-34mpg) and thats normal driving with the odd blast here and there
