280 miles off a 35-40 litre tank (at a guess?) is still pretty low, it would suggest there is something wrong, is it well serviced?

I would say get it to Ford for a review!

you need to be a bit more accurate with amount of fuel, and monitor the mileage till it hits the samer point you last refilled.

dont buy petrol at the moment, so if petrol is around 1.30 p/litre, £45 will be approx 35 litres, which is approx 7 gallons

280 miles on 7 gallons = 40mpg...

not sure what the expected fuel consumption is on a KA, but if ive got the figures roughly right, 40mpg around town doesnt sound too bad to me

thats why you need to be more accurate with the numbers..plus be sure you are using all the fuel you have put in or if you refill at a point that was slightly more or slightly less than last time..

how many litres are you getting for £45, have you judged the mileage at the precise (or close as possible) point the guage returns to, when you refilled

in other words, is that 280 miles using 6/7 or 8 gallons..makes a huge difference in working out consumption figures
