II am currently in the process of seeing how many miles I can get out a tank..... currently done 470 and averaging 65.8mpg.... my dash reckons I've got another 142 miles left..... so I'm hoping to clear 600 miles to a tank. I will be driving very close to petrol stations near the end lol.

I'm driving a 1.6 mk7 tdci zetec s.

I have about a 1/4 mile to get out my town, then a few miles on country roads, then motoroway for almost 25 miles then a mile of town again, then back again at end of day. I was trying to sit around 60-65 for the first half tank, then found 49 was more economical (give or take for up and down hills).

My car has done just over 30k

I'm actually planning ahead to make sure I get the 600 and get filled up no probs. I'm gonna have to finish the tank on Wednesday, coz I wont have enough to get all the way to work Thu morning, so will go a wee drive up and down duel carriageway for 20 miles or so.

Hi Folks.

Good to see my thread is still alive after all this time (1 year and 5 months lol)

G/f's 1.25 style 60ps is getting on average 43mpg and the most miles from 40 litres of petrol was 410 and it had another 20 miles in it.

The Best mpg was 47.0 dead on and achieved 396 miles from 38.30 litres

We record every fill up

why is he sad for starting this thread? It's a valid discussion as nowadays more and more people are trying to conserve fuel and the more miles per tank the better..

I think you will find that a lot of members on this site record every fill up and the MPG from every tank of fuel..I'm one of them!

Calm down mate. You obviously lost your sense of humour when you bought your notepad and pen to start documenting mileage.

Lol, I've learned a fair amount about how to drive economically since I've done this experiment. Here's the pics I took when I parked up earlier today.

Lol. No secrets. But some basic rules which are very obvious when you think about em.

- don't put the accelerator down any more than just tickling it, slow acceleration and gear changing to get up to speed
- push a little bit harder when going down a hill and slow coast or slow off going uphill (dont coast downhill unless there's a sharp turn at bottom that youre gonna have to brake for
- preempt everything and coast to stops if possible, eg lights, roundabouts, corners etc, try never brake, you're only wasting the fuel you used to get to that speed.
- and the most important of all...... be patient.

i hope I haven't hurt any feelings by my comments.... if I have then you really have a sheltered life and should be protected with bubble wrap and cotton wool incase any may look at you wrong.

Or if I didn't offend you and you took it in good banterful nature, then well done. youve proved you're human.
