What kind of silly MPG are you getting? I've never really kept track before, just made a note of monthly petrol costs. Since getting the V70 though I've been keeping track of MPG using fuelly (my dash computer is far too generous with average MPG estimates). Even though diesel is more expensive than petrol and it costs me over £90 to fill a tank it's actually working out better for me, despite having lead in my foot and having the aircon on all the time. 39.4 MPG is my best so far. I must have got less than that with my crappy 1.2 Fiesta, I used to fork out about £120 a month for petrol with that.Must admit I'm not enjoying the fuel mileage
That's fairly accurate. Petrol is around £1.30 per litre, so £75 gets you around 57.7 litres, which is about 12.7 gallons. For 300 miles that's 23.6 mpg. If you price per litre cost is higher then that gets the figure closer to 22 mpg.The fuel info thingy says 22mpg but I have no idea how accurate that is.
I get that out of my 2.4 V70 and I'm sure on a long journey I could get much better. Okay so it is diesel, but it's 163bhpThat's fairly accurate.

I get 38-40 mpg in my 1.2 petrol Fiesta.
See, I wouldn't have you down as a Fiesta driver. Always pictured you in a Morris Minor with a tweed jacket with elbow pads.I get 38-40 mpg in my 1.2 petrol Fiesta.

Im an Astra owner. Not by choice. One day I will own a Silver Shadow. Not very practical, but absolute sex on 4 wheels
