    Vauxhall Astra1.7cdti diesel, not a van but a car...

    I get 370/400 miles to one tank, which cost about the same as above.
    Depending how I drive and where I drive, get a bit more when I do longer trips obvisly..

    Unless you do a brim to brim millage check and use a mpg calculator then its useless.

    My mondeo gets 54mpg on 50/50 town/motorway

    I had a mondeo!

    For 6 months after I past my test...that car was awsome lol loud exaust haha!

    Thing with that car, as was 2 litre, it kept drinking it in and around town.
    probably doing 25mpg

    On the motorway it was doing 50 to 60 mpg.

    I went to london last year in it, and so drove there, drove around london and back over a weekend, all other cars needed filling up, got back home with a little more then quarter of a tank!

    Renault Kangoo DCI (don't laugh...it's a company van :p ) to be fair it's not a bad van.
    I allways brim the tank and work out my mpg and the cost per mile...am I sad or wot :lol: .

    Sensible 'A' road driving and not above 60mph on motorway........
    397 miles = 43mpg = 0.14p per mile @£1.389 per ltr . :)

    One round trip of all motorway driving and not going below 70mph (wink wink).....
    216 miles = 34mpg = 0.19p per mile @£1.409 per ltr :eek: :rolleyes: :lol: .
