Mines a 2 litre PETROL and to honest the fuel consumption purely town driving, plenty of stop starts and short trips and the car is averaging about 28mpg.
When it is driven up and down the motorway regularly I have had as much as 36.5mpg, so no where near as good as the diesel, but its quiet, smooth and just and all round nice car to own and drive, and for me much more flexibility that any Zafira......
I had an old shape Zafira 2.0DTI and although in the early days of owning it the car returned good ecomony, it was never a 'fun' car to drive and the year I traded it in (got £4000)I had paid out the best part of £1500 as new discs and pads all round and a major service had to be done andan 'internal' seal in the engine split and meant half the engine had to be taken out.
Low and behold the part cost me only £80, but thegaragethen added almost £700 labour.
