for a 8v 25mpg is good
I normally get 20mpg in town, & when giving some up the motorway etc about 15/18mpg is about right......
best I`ve ever got is 25mpg.......

mine is a 1987 T8 8) 8)

I usually get 25-28 MPG mixed urban, certainly 28 on a longer run at 70-80 MPH. One a good tank of high octane, I can only get it down as low as about 22 MPG driving it like I nicked it

I put Shell V-Power in mine, only problem is price. A gallon of reg Shell 87 costs 1.99, while V-Power 93 costs 2.25, but I spare the extra quarter per gallon I did notice a change in performance, even though when I was running on regular, my non turbo 16V was still taking Civics with engine intake modifications

saab_cruz, RON and octane figures aren't quite the same, 87 Octane is about 91 RON, 91 octane is about 95 RON, and IIRC 100 is about 94 or something around there.

Up here we can get 94 Octane gas at Sunoco stations, Shell Optimax is only 93.


cheers,

aleks.

Ooops, I meant optimax in the 'states is 93 Octane, and here we can also get 94 Octane gas.

So confusing, RON, octane, miles, kms, gallons, gallons, litres . . . .

Go figure.

cheers,

aleks.
