Used to have the mk6.5 diesel 1.4 and that managed a constant 63mpg in the summer  and 58mpg in the winter. now got the mk7.5 econetic 1.6 diesel and thats doing 68 mpg at the moment without trying to hard. always get over 500 miles to the tank without draining it to the red line. If i get really anal i can get over 75mpg depending on roads and traffic etc.

In Topic: Bp Fuel

to say t


I found absolutely no diffferance what fuel I use. Whether its shell, shell v power or bp. Every now and then I fill up with the good stuff but even supermarket fuel comes from the same place. It's just the additives each brand put in.


You will find it's a bit more than just the additives.

Yes the fuel comes from the same refinery but the cheaper stuff doesn't get as well refined, . It's all about the hydocarbons in the fuel, the shorter the chains of hydrocarbons the better the fuel and the better it burns. So you get what you pay for. I do 30k a year and the difference is about 50 miles per tank with a noticable response and acceleration from the engine. Used to have a corsa and that wouldn't start first time with any supermarket fuel and was fine with the premium brands.

Why not get the cheapish plastic interior upholstered maybe in leather or something? lol Welcome to the club


I'm going to be spending most of my time looking out so shouldn't be a problem but i guess i could get someone to have a look at it.if it still offends me in a few months time, my last car had blue interior so it just looks different.
