errrrrrm, nope...... and i can drive perfectly fine thank you very much!... Clearly its you who needs the help, stop braking so much? dont need to accelerate as much then :P

My Ibiza 1.8 20V T mapped to the hilt, with many, many mods managed more than 240 miles per tank...... that was on full chat most the time!

Re: Upgrade 1.4 t-jet

Dont see how you are getting 50mpg tbh as that is what 400ish miles to a tank works out at. Way above Fiats official Figures. Ibiza is irrelivant because the tank size is most likely gonna be different.

I can average 37-43 Mpg (37 when i use it "properly" 43 when i aim for 400+ miles to a tank) As i like experiments i am gonna drive like a granny for the next tank (just filled up this morning 41 litres of 99Ron Tesco's) and will post back how far i can get! Who wants to have a guess at what i can get?

i reckon i'll do 395 miles (470 is impossible i think)

Ibiza tank was 40 to fill, same as the punto....

Well it hardly makes me 'big and 'ard' to lie on a forum now does it, the OP asked a Q, he got an answer...

Car doesnt get thrashed through 30, 40, 50 zones, ifIi want fun i go and play out in the sticks, which is on my weay to work fortunatly, trip to work has 2 30 zones, and no speed cameras, its 30 miles each way (60 miles per day) a tank of petrol easily lasts me 1 week (7 days!)i probably do 100 odd miles at the weekends... Avg speed in car the other day was reading 39 mph.. obviously it depends where your driving, but for the stretch i do, its reasnably high..

you used higher octane fuel on previous tanks? takes a few tanks for the car (ecu) to realise and use the higher octane fuel properly...

Re: Upgrade 1.4 t-jet

I do 50miles a day. 30 miles of that is on A road, and 20 is b road/country lanes. Mainly 60 limits with the odd 40/50 one chucked in for a couple of miles. Mine might of been better on petrol when it was standard. Think i managed to get 300miles to a tank then.
