Re: Newbie needs advice

I think he means in 60miles the car used 6.4 litres of petrol which i think is just under 1.5 gallons which works out that the car used 1 gallon of petrol to every 40 miles give or take a bit.

Re: Newbie needs advice

I am a newbie too (just signed up) and already I am interested in this post as the Mrs has ordered the 1.3 90BHP Diesel due to the cheap road tax and fact it's for just round town

Look forward to chatting more often and swapping posts

Re: Newbie needs advice

Thanks Fiat_-_Bravo - Is this good? I was told that it was
"Fuel Consumption (Urban) 45.6 mpg
Fuel Consumption (ExtraUrban) 80.7 mpg
Fuel Consumption (Combined) 62.8 mpg"


lonepilgrim - I too was pleased to see the road tax was so low - brilliant for a commuting student.. all those pennies adding up

Re: Newbie needs advice

yeah 40 miles to the gallon is good as long as that driving was what it classed as urban which is based arund driving around a town with frequent stop starts around 30 mph

Re: Newbie needs advice

Haha, I'll be staying at home and commuting to Bath - thus saving money on accommodation and food and bills - my Mother has decided I pay rent by doing the housework. Sounds good to me!

for town driving you might aswell have got the petrol model as diesels are more for longer commutes unless the 1.3 is good round town but my diesel is just the same as a petrol
