Hello Everyone,

Just wondered about how many miles you get to a full tank or whatever.

I know this topic may have already been made but couldnt find one!

I only ever fill up 20 - and yes i know this will be affected with the reduced petrol costs, but i average around 60 miles! How good/bad is this?


Please everyone post what you get to however amount or half tank/full tank etc and what car you got!

my rover 45 ixs 1.8i did about 32-35mpg on a tenner,my fiesta fuel gauge needle barely moved in 20 miles.

i love my little fiesta even though it has dents and scrapes......brilliant little car and so easy to see why they are so popular :)

If you get 60 miles on 20 then you have some problems :blink:

I get around 360 - 400 on a full tank, which is 36 ish.

A full tank on my Mondeo 1.8 costs about 50 and driving at the speed limit but not holding folk up I get 425 ish miles.

The best I ever got was 470 (lots of M6 driving snore) before I bottled it and filled up LOL

I average 40 mpg on motorway trips and the low 30's round town.

60 miles to 20 is scary and if I were you I'd sell that Dodge Viper you are driving..!

I used to work with a bloke who had a mad rich uncle and his uncle had a late 90's Aston Vantage - which he sent back to the factory for the performance option to push 600bhp

The mechanic that built his engine told him it took a litre of petrol just to start it :blink: LOL

Focus 1.8 TDDi with induction kit. Returns approx 550-600 miles per 52 litre tank full of diesel. Not bad considering the back carries a little bit of weight everywhere with it

20 for 60 miles in ANY Fiesta is disgusting. Either stop wearing the lead soled shoes or get it fixed. Easily you should be getting 3 times that for 20

!Removed! HELL...

If you left the boot open and hit the bass will you get to 60 faster?

Last time I saw something like that sticking out the back of something it was taking off from a military airfield!
