that would work out at about 28/29 miles per gallon which imho is pretty good.

all depends on the type of driving you do etc

just noticed your not from the uk, fuel is about 40 litres but not sure on how to change miles to kms.

My speedo says 100mph is 150kmh so 350 miles is roughly 525km to 40 litres

may help

all the best.......mark

19tal is doing
between 25.42 and 28.25 mpg which is ok for stop start driving, you should be doing over 30 mpg if you made your journeys longer
and over 40 mpg if you had a long trip with no stopping.

that translates to

9-10 kpl stop/start driving
11-12 kpl bit longer jouneys
and 14-16 kpl on longer trips with no stopping

ecotek

I bought an ecotek valve for mine, they are pretty easy to fit and set up and are supposed to give around twenty percent better fuel economy, mine does about ten but look it up and have a read, well worth the fifty quid i paid.

Year okay, I for the most dirve i the town, and thats much Stop and Start driving.

Okay, I’m not so worried then. Thought something was wrong, if its okay driving 9-10 km/L in town.

Its right that the car will drive longer on a Liter when is longer jouneys, have
notised (not speld correct :p) that.

But thanks for the help. :)
