1.6 TDCi 115 - Car usually reckons 510 miles, but can fluctuate between 480 and 500 in reality.

 

I don't usually drive particularly economically, was getting around 45 mpg, but since a service and the slightly warmer weather, I've been getting over 50mpg... given I'm in no way light footed, I have been  very impressed recently!

1.0 Ecoboost around 400-410 per tank (though doesn't include what's left in the tank when I fill up). According to my spreadsheet overall miles per tank would be around 480

1.8 petrol on a mostly motorway weekend around 420 miles per tank.

Town only and I'm looking around the 300-&-somethings.

That was all pretty steady 70ish/50 for half the M6 and 15 miles of walking pace (that's just an outright grumble...ignore me). Although I do enjoy getting up to speed ASAP, I rarely go over 3k rpm.

I reckon a good service and wafting up to speed could save me a few pennies.

I think it's also worth noting that I had a full tank of Shell Fuelsave. Which compared to Morrisons seems to have given me around an 1/8th of a tank improvement on my last run to Crawley.

For the size of the engine, I'm reasonably surprised at the fuel usage. Doesn't drink it as much as I thought it would.

Lots of start/stop driving, your car never gets the chance to really get going.

Quite a varied response, thing is my old Astra 1.6 petrol (z16xe) was getting 250 miles to its 52 litre tank fuel light to fuel light ... So I really am enjoying driving a tractor engine lol

1.6Tdci 110ps, range=650-680, 11p per mile

Probably because 75% of my journey is around the M42 at about 60mph

2008 1.6 TDCI 110. 600 miles to empty once brimmed. Usually pretty accurate. Motorway every day.

I've got a 2005 1.6TDCi Estate and I'm getting generally on city driving about 450 to a tank of cheap supermarket fuel with RedEx on every third tank.

On a long run I've had the MPG up to 85-90. Normally hitting 40 MPG by the end of the tank.

 

Not really a lead footed person but I have been known to blast little boy racers off the line.
