I recently had the fuel pump and swirl valve actuator changed and just wonder if this has had some impact on consumption. £25 of fuel show 200mpg on the onboard computer but I never achieve what the onboard management system states.
Please post your consumption so I can compare.
I have a Zafira B 05 plate 2.2SRI petrol and currently get the following mpg
Around town 24mpg
Motorway in 6th gear 48mpg full load 4 passengers travelling at 56mph.
I can literally see the needle moving on the fuel gauge.
Is this good or bad?
My thoughts are that motorway driving is good but around town is poor. Can anyone suggest some remedies to improve my fuel consumption apart from not driving. I have my tyres inflated to 46psi, I drive at 56mph to get the above motorway fuel consumption and I do not have the fuel tank full and keep the boot empty to reduce weight. I also drive like a vicar so any other tips much appreciated.
I am considering using different fuel currently using ESSO unleaded will change to SHELL unleaded to see if this has any impact.
