Re: is this normal???

i only get 26-7mpg from my 156 1.6 when i use it, but i have mostly urban driving.
i think thats appauling for a 1.6 but when motorway driving it does improve a great deal. i have got more than 400miles out of a tank on pure motorway miles.

your thermostat could have gone and could be affecting the performance? or any of the temp sensors/maf etc.

crikes my 147 2.0 ts is around 30 mpg around the same as my previous 1.6 !

the mpg is worked out using the trip gauge and how much fuel put in not using the onboard computer which i dont think is very accurate

Re: is this normal???

Sounds about right but depends on your trip as jackojet says. I can get about 34 out of mine on a decent journey on motorways.
