I disagree, 60-70 is going to kill MPG, 50-55, 60 at a push, is going to be best from experience with the Panda's, which are not to disimilar under the bonnet.

Re: what range can you guys get in your cento ?

Why do people worry so much about MPG, when they drive a 1.1/1.2 ?

Because i drive at 60-70 on motorway i am throwing money away ?

I value my time more than the extra gained from the 2-5 MPG.

If am truly concern i would just cycle everywhere to be honest.

Each to their own, its more than just time gained, more stress etc also, for 5-10 min saved on a 3 hour journey.....

I find driving economically more stressful and more tiring that just driving without worrying about the mpg and just keeping to the speed limits and/or the flow of traffic. Besides which i find the alfa does the most mpg if you get upto speed as quickly as possible and then just whack it on cruise control, speeding up casually seems to just use alot more fuel than a quick burst of power.

Re: what range can you guys get in your cento ?

Im same as blu - the quicker it is the better the MPG so long as its constant and not up and down, this is where i really need to get cruise control retro-fitted so can be more constant

But i am twice the engine capacity what is being discussed on here so probably not beneficial to be going quicker in the weedy engine cars

I also find economy driving stressful and get bored, especially near journeys end and i always come across some t*t who is driving half a mph quicker or slower than you so you have to put your foot down and then it ruins everything!

I dont really speed since i had my major crash but wont sit on the inside lane at 55mph to squeeze and extra mile out of car - i go with the flow of the traffic - if ive saved a few quid and done alright, so be it, if i havent - meh

People who get a thrill out of knowing theyve saved 2 quid for every long journey theyve been on more than likely live at home with their parents, have probably never been laid and play world of warcraft all night browsing the internet for next add on pack

I dont begrudge these individuals doing what they are doing driving wise though let me add, and some its probably necessary to be a bit more economical - for example a delivery driver or a travelling salesman or those that do 20/30k a year in the car

And lets not forget - theres always a remap - you'll also see an increase in MPG going that route and it will pay for itself over time and you dont have to drive like an anus
Thanks ycming thanked for this post

Re: what range can you guys get in your cento ?

Well,I stick to about 60 mph and listen to my Inspector Morse talking book,not sure what a world of warcraft is but is sounds nasty.doing 20000 miles plus per year gives a bit of an incentive to save money on fuel too.

Re: what range can you guys get in your cento ?

To put it into some kind of perspective, I have to drive to Manchester twice today and don't expect much change from 60.

120 miles or so.

I won't be cruising at an indicated 65.

well for your information the M1 between Luton and Milton Keynes has speed cameras on the variable speed ganteries and they are getting customers even when the displays are off, I think they are then set to 77mph

When i had my yellow 52 plate seicento sporting lpg converted, it would do near enough 300 miles on just over 20 and that was with spirited driving,
