How many miles do you get to a full tank?

I know this is dependent on type of journey etc and how you drive it but wanted to get an estimate. For about £30 my car is near empty after 200 or so miles is this normal?

Thanks,

Alex

I had GTE 8v up to till last december, I used to get between 200-260 miles from a full tank.
Sometimes got more but I'd have to take it very steady!!!!! not easy in a GTE!

Hope that helps.

Glad im getting about the same as everybody else mpg wise. Yeah thats sitting in traffic for 10-15 min and town. Of course gtes were not meant to be driven "economically" all the time..

so, you have 9 gallon tank (42 litres ish) 22mpg.

fraid to say if your "having fun" around town thats about right, you should get 30+mpg on steady motorway stuff.

The 2.0 8v aren't amazing on mpg.

Mine did about 220-260miles for a full tank when it was standard.
Since binning weight and fitting a decent exhaust system etc it returns 240-280 miles per tank.
That's all for "normal" driving which means a random mix of slow stuff, round town stuff, foot to the floor starts and some motorway 85mph stuff.
