  • What MPG are Vectra VXR owners getting ?

    Currently in my 3.2 v6 vectra GSi I'm getting 27.3 using shell v-power
    About 300-330 a tank

    Picking up my VXR Vectra Thursday
    So what mpg/miles to a tank full are fellow owners getting at the moment ?
    And does anyone run normal unleaded ?

      Mine is doing the odd trip around town but most miles are going away to powevents etc, I do drive sensibly and am averaging just under 34 mpg over 1500 miles on Vpower.



      my VXR history: Arden Corsa, Astra Nurburgring, Corsa Arctic, Evoke VXR8, Black Corsa, Silver Vectra, a long weekend with an Insignia, a chilli burger and now a siggy tourer!

        Covered about 5k miles since I had mines, done 28 mpg and that's a good mix of driving styles and motorway/a/b road etc. Just completed a 900 round trip and managed 33mpg mainly motorway - stuck in traffic quite a bit

        Not on normal unleaded - use super unleaded.

          I've averaged 22.5 over 25K miles on cars BC, car used daily but mostly A and B roads very little motorway miles and do like to enjoy the car.
          Did once get 38 mpg on easy motorway trip to Manchester using cc.
          Only ever ran it on V Power since purchase apart from one tank of Tesco 99 and I do know local petrol station staff by first names

          Regards Brian

                  We get about 24 mpg - and that is about 20 miles a day driving small country roads.

                  I just took the Veccy down to Norfolk last week, and managed 33 mpg on a 270 mile mainly motorway run.

                    I use my 2.8 Elite Auto mainly for business, so it tends to be runs on the motorway on CC.
                    41mpg on a regular 70mph motorway run.
                    (although late night runs home from the airport can see that drop to 30mpg :-)
                    when it's mixed roads, it tends to be around 32-33mpg.
                    At the moment, i'm running on Asda special brew.

                    Interestingly, it's out of warranty in sept, so i'm looking forward to seeing what kind of difference a Courtney remap makes to the economy.

                      27-28mpg in mine. Roughly around 300-320 miles from a tank of 99. Thats totally mixed driving on a range of roads.
