Just back from the coast,what a day here,decided to full up the tank,trip the odometer & see how many miles I get!!!


What do people reckon,mostly town driving will be done(non motorway),am hoping to get around 250/300 miles,even less if i boot it!!! :P :P :P

I reckon you'll be hard pushed to get more than 26-27 mpg round town and certainly no more that 34 mpg overall.

I certainly can't get anymore out of our Sportka which is the same engine although the Streetka is probably heavier so those figures may be a little optimistic.................. :rolleyes:

Just done over 70miles so far,1/3 of the tank gone! Looks like I will be lucky to get 200!!! :P


Oh well,at least its fun............................ :P :P :P

How much does it cost you for a full tank?

Mine comes to 25, can never put any more in then that....
aquila
I put in 23,although it wasn't empty!!!

Usually I put in 20,takes it to over a 3/4 tank.

I'm going to wait till the petrol light comes on,just to give me a a better idea :P


Then next time I will do the same,changing the filter to a K&N panel filter,just to see if it makes any difference in torque,grunt or fuel economy ;)
aquila
That's me done 173miles so far,just about the 1/4 tank! :P

:D :D you gotta love small cars. 23 wouldnt get mine out of the red, well ok it would it costs 52 to fill it up from flat empty.
aquila
People moan that you don't get a lot of mileage ,but as you said,you don't put much in!!! :P


Getting over 200 to a small tank aint bad,especially just driving around town ;)
aquila
Well folks,that's me over the 200 mark,still waiting for the fuel light to come on! :P

I reckon the car will do 250 miles easy on a full tank,not bad for a wee roadster.

Will try it next week with a K&N panel filter next,to see if it differs ;)
aquila
That's the light on folks,done 227 miles,not bad eh!

Can be better with a lighter foot but that's no fun!!! :P

Reckon you can do better,the challenge is open............
