i did one trip of 180 miles on the motorway at relatively high speeds (around 80 -90) and got 47.8 by the computer.

Engine blew all of its oil out that day onto the A1. Never got the car back, no-one could stop it pressurising the crank and blowing seals, it was absolute rubbish.

On the up side it was much more torquey than the 1.9 that I now have, and more economical at 80 than the 1.9.

The 1.9 seems to be the more reliable engine, its only failed to drive once in 5000 miles. It averages around 44. Not too good really, but at least it drives. Very smokey under acceleration and absolutely no torque in the higher gears.

Anyone else find theirs gutless?
