Hello

Recently purchased the above vehicle.We dont seem to be getting much above 35mpg. Is this correct?

If not what should i be looking at?

Has been serviced regularly and starts/drives fine.

Many thanks

Thats rather an open-ended question my friend :lol:

What sort of driving are you doing for a start?

Mixture of mainly town and motorway. Its the missus car. I just expected a few more mpg. Maybe its her, i keep reminding her it has 6 gears.

What should we be getting on a run around 75mph?

cheers

Does depend a lot on driving style, like what revs she takes it up to, how fast she then drives before braking, i.e. gentle braking, or hard braking and then accelerating.... the list does go on, and thats before you even start to look at mechanical reasons on the car.

My 407 managed 49.5mpg on a 300 mile motorway run at 75mph with the same engine, so yours being a 307, I would expect similar, especially as it is a smaller/lighter car. I tend to get 40mpg is average around here though.
