yes sometimes....even on a lgood run it does'nt seem that good. around 30mpg.
im comparing to my previous car, a 2 litre mondeo, and i used to get around 26 mpg around town, on a run i would get around 46mpg.

i know its two different types of car, but surely it should be better.

the first port of call would be CTS and lambda sensor along with checking the exhuast system for leaks imo as those are the items that can make the most effect on fuel economy

ok will check them, i think the lambda is ok, coz my car had its MOT month back, and the lambda passed.
or does'nt it make any difference?

is there any way to test the CTS, or is it a case of just replacing?

i borrowed a Cmax a while back which is effectively the same style of vehicle as the Zaffy... it had similar atrotious mpg, no matter how hard i tried.
Its just due to them being heavy, underpowered, un aerodynamic and genearlly inefficient.
Oh and having things like AC and heated screens on effect it big time too
