Re: Im only getting 49 miles to £10.00, is this right?
Your short journeys are no doubt responsible.
Another thing I recently found out it that many (usually supermarket fuels) use an alcohol blend. This can improve performance, but as alcohol fuel has a lower calorific value, they give less mgp. The alcohol likes a richer mixture, so the O2 sensor should defect this, and turn the fuel trim richer. BTW, this will make a 2mpg difference at most.
Shell and BP are two that still provide proper petrol.
