25 was nowhere near half tank. Guage might fool you by going to half.

Full tank holds 47liters, which is about 77 @ 1.65...
25 will only get you 15l, which is 3.5gallons, which at 40mpg will only get 135miles

9 miles per litre is what we average on mixed driving around town with the odd long run.

Talking Re: Punto MK2 MPG

My 2000 1.2 8v will average 52-53mpg when driven sensibly, the burning oil could be an issue with valve stem seals or head gasket, is it using water also?
