did'nt i moan and moan and moan and keep on moaning about 1.6 fuel economy, well check out todays picture. still getting diesel thou 
thats terrible, i used to moan because i kept on averaging 36 etc, i realise now that was because i did 70 on the motorway, now i do 60 it ups your figures so much. and my journey time is at most a couple of mins longeriv got a golf 1.6 16v with exhause and air filter and im lucky to see around 28 taking it steady altho does do a nice 19mpg at 110!
33.2 on a full tank! what, you must really blast your car then, you should be geting 50 easilyMine averages at 33.2mpg over a full tank! Can get as high as 50mpg on the way to work taking it easy or as little as 24 mpg on the way home from work if it has been a stressful day!
its only really on the straights, corners and obviously going around town i go slow, but ive never been able to get about 32/33 as soon as i see a straight with not traffic, i dont go mad but can get it going pretty well.I normally get about 32/33, but i thought i would have a relaxing drive
I'm only achiving low to mid 40's in mine now did see 49 the other day though!Nah, even taking it steady with crawling in traffic etc most I get out of a tank is around 46 average, that includes motorway commute to work (mfa shows 50-55) about 45 coming home and some long runs (58+) but in real terms once you've queued for a bit and given it some kosh on a weekend its down to low to mid 40s, still good for a car which will do 0-60 in just shy of 9seconds, and will outgun most things sensible with the mid range.
I do try! Cant get the average that low though!I can't believe it! People driving like Miss Daisy and then boasting about it! What is the world coming to?!
Now behave yourselves and go back to trying to get you mpgs into single figures!
