  • Silverstone trip, MPG??

    Got back from a fantastic day at silverstone yesterday after a long drive down and back in a day, boy it was tireing. Anyways i managed 34mpg, got there and back and did 360 miles on a full tank, fuel light just come on as i got home, this was motorway driving and a bit of town driving. Think the car did well tbh. Cost £60 to fill right back up to top with V-power. I know this is yet another boring MPG thread but just thought id let you people know.

    got it to 32.4 mpg 140 mile round trip but i did have a play with an Audi just after Walsall roadworks.lol. dropped down rather quickly, oh well, it was economical till then i suppose, still only 1082 miles on clock.

                      I filled up after leaving the track to literally just under full and it used a quarter of a tank in about 50 miles.

                      Ive taken this problem to the dealers before and they tell me theres nothing wrong with it.

                      I know these cars arnt the most fuel economic but that is pathetic.
                      Rich followed me for a few miles to check for a possible fuel leak but could see nothing.

                      I wonder if it has something to do with the noise im getting from the brakes.

                      Just wondering if the noise is comming from the brakes and not the engine.

                      Obviously something is wrong but sick of getting fobbed off by the dealers.
