31.5mpg around towm. It's great to get that much especially as I am used to 25 using the more expensive diesel. B)

Do it right - use Hammerite
When the blue light is flashing I am kidding.

I get 240 miles out of a full tank & 150miles out of half tank (21 litres) as I believe the extra weight makes a big difference to mpg. Also accelerate gently don't let the revs go above 3000rpm (55mph) that's in a 2000 auto Jim.

My wife has a Micra used locally and never gets more than 34mpg. I get 50 out of it on a run. My daughter has an i10 and was very disappointed with the mpg she uses it for 10 mile trips to work and only gets 35mpg.


Just got back from Norfolk and averaged 39 MPG for the trip. That was not going over 60 MPH on any road and mostly under 40 around the lanes.

I did a run to good old Blackpool in the week i did 65/70 mph on the way up there and 55/60 mph on the way back and did 270 miles and still had 8 or 9 l left in the tank! since i fitted the 'chip' to the Jim fuel has been improved(unless i boot it then it's worse).

A gallon is nearer 4.5 ltrs! so that would be 9 ltrs for 70mls!! If you've used 10 you're probably nearer 30/32 then 35 mpg!
I've not done the actual calculation just an estimate lol

I started off high and worked my way down ever since :-)

Mine is a 57 plate. I was getting 36-37 mpg with the original Bridgestone duellers but since I changed to Yokohama Geolandar ATs I am getting 33-34. No modifications to it otherwise, drive to work on a mixture of dual carriageway and urban roads and I don't do more than 60mph. If we get some snow it will all be worthwhile.
