Hi Roy - I put the details under fuel consumption on the tech page - its a 1.8 petrol with an insatiable thirst for fuel - 23mpg average

Try adding some Redex at each refuel,it might help a little.

My other half gets about 28mpg out of our 2 litre so I would expect the 1.8 to be slightly better than that.
I've just started using 'super unleaded' going to see if that makes any difference over the next month or so.

I'll keep you all updates.
