    Thats not very good MPG for a small van.
    What van have you got now...
    Is it Diesel or Petrol....
    How much is fuel in your area.

    Everyone has there own taste. I have the Vauxhall Vivaro. It all depends on how much weight you have to pull. I have 650 tank, plus carpet cleaning so need a biggish van. Saying that I'm looking at Fiat Scudo LWB 2009/10.

    60 miles to £10 is a ver inaccurate way of checking the mpg.

    You need to brim the tank, use at least half, them brim it again and compare the liters put in to miles done

    CNS is right......
    This IS the only way to get a true calculation of your fuel consumption.

    You can forget about squirting a £10'rs worth of fuel in the tank and those trip computer thingys for working out mpg.
