Fuel consumption

I've been doing a little checking recently about the fuel consumption and found that once again I've got 400+ miles from a tank. Best I've got from a tankfull is over 36mpg! Ok, I did try to avoid maximum acceleration and 100mph+ when doing this, but I'm only human, and did succumb to my primal needs on a couple of occasions!

I usually still manage 350 miles (30.5mpg), but it never really drops below 300 (26mpg) even when there is a fair bit of cross country press on driving.

I'm really happy with the economy from the 1.8 16v, and do acknowlegde that few of my trips are less than 20 miles. I did note a while back that 155ers in general weren't very impressed with economy, but all in all, I'm delighted! Its a fair bit better than the 24-28mpg I got from my old 75TS.

The key to good ecomomy is not to slow down for corners!
