Oh sorry 1.6 petrol

That sounds about right, I've got a 1.6 100ps and I'm driving 7 miles to work and back (All dual carriageway at 50mph) and getting 34mpg just now. The winter drags the mpg down, radio on, lights on, heating, air con etc all contribute to lowering mpg as does short trips. You'll find in the summer the mpg comes up by 4 or 5 mpg as its warmer

That's good then it's costing me a fortune, and the dreaded mot at the end of the month 😣
