Just got a brand new 1.8LT last week. Love it, the most stress free comfortable ride I've had since a Daewoo Leganza.

Only bug is the fuel consumption. Quoted figures are 31.7/54.3/42.8
After only a week ( I know not really long enough to judge) I've done about 220 miles split pretty evenly between typical town driving and a 50 mile there and back run at a steady 60mph. Trip meter is only showing 30.5, I'd have expected better.

Does anyone achieve anything like the quoted figures ?

my epica vcdi has so far since last august returned me an average 42mpg on mixed long distance and local driving. Has got slightly better now i've done 20000 miles (13000 since i bought it) a week is too soon to judge. the previous lacetti 1.6sw was giving around 40 long distance and 35 around town, so pleased with both. certainly give yours time to loosen up. and put fully synthetic in at the oil change too! Happy motoring!
