Re: how many miles from a tank are you getting

Is it a rough starter? Could be MAF sensor, if they go faulty your MPG drops considerably.

Re: how many miles from a tank are you getting

Regularly check your tyre pressures and MPG will drop during the winter months (perhaps not that significantly...)

Re: how many miles from a tank are you getting

I once got 587 miles out of my Mjet, Oldham to Romford (234 miles),then romford to Bristol (160 miles) then Bristol back to Oldham ( 180 miles) and I still had enough fuel left to do 2 driving lessons as well.
The car peaked at 63.5 mpg on the M4 between Romford and Bristol, that impressed me.I was only doing around 64 mph on cruise control . Usual mpg was around 39 around town and 56 on a run

Re: how many miles from a tank are you getting

I only get 400 miles out of my mjet i am amazed ppl are getting 500 + out of theres. Just driving normaly 41 mgp is about as good as it gets normaly 37-39. I am hoping after i have fitted the tuning box it may go up a bit.

Me too, I try and drive economically as possible and never seem to see 42 unless I've only the used the car to get to and from uni (1 junction of the m6). I find it appauling but I will be getting a full service done soon, including belt and water pump. Hopefully this will see a rise in economy.

Re: how many miles from a tank are you getting

Just the belt and tensioner is 108 then 22 for the water pump, I proved the oil and filter coz i sourced em at a good price. The garage is changing the oil/filter, break fluid, cam belt and water pump and MOTing it for me. I havn't pick it up yet so don't know the top line price I am expecting around 500 TBA

I am having it done at a local independant garage i have used before when my wish bone needed doing, they only charge 45 an hour and they are realy honest (unlike some garages)
Thanks willeywilson thanked for this post
