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:

How much does it cost you for a full tank?

Mine comes to £25, can never put any more in then that....

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 ;)

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 ;)

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 ;)
