@Bob1125 - have you tried BP Ultimate? If so, how do you think it compared to Shell Nitro?

Have the 1.4 150PS, over the last 374 miles I used 37.38 litres, working out at 45.48 MPG. The car was reporting 50.
I haven't been driving it too hard though, it is new, after all...

(As a side note, I like the fact I can change the language to English, AND the measurements to Imperial even though it's a left-hand drive Opel!)

Just back from a couple of nights away.
Journey was Wirral --> Lake District --> West Wales --> Wirral. Just shy of 400 miles.

No red light for fuel yet and reported 50mpg. Will calculate at fill up over the weekend. But pretty happy with that for 40% motorway at 70mph 50% A+B mountain roads and 10% through Liverpool in traffic. Tyre pressures at 32psi.

Looks like your not far off the light coming on so I'd say your doing a little over 45 mpg.

Worked out to 45.7mpg (Uk).
40.31 liters for 406 miles.
Pretty good going that.

Like they say, there's no replacement for displacement. Modern turbo petrols aren't living up.

I have a 1.4T 150 on the way and knew full well the MPG figures would be optimistic at best. Go over to the Ford Focus forums and look at the Ecoboost engines (turbo petrols) which have the same issue. They're getting closer to 50% of the acclaimed MPG figures.

Diesel do achieve great MPG but there's a campaign against them, electric isn't mature enough, and petrol continues to be thirsty.

Hi guys,

Could people post a screen shot of their MyOpel/Vauxhall app next time they fill up showing how many ltrs and mileage range. I only need this for the 1.4T 150 as I want to show dealer how poor mine is!

Thanks
