Pete, Well that certainly burst your bubble ! I like you would have expected better than that. I'm tempted to say there must be something wrong?
That is worse than I used to get from nearly two tonne of Captiva.
What you have also highlighted is the huge improvement from modern engines. My run-around now is a Suzuki Ignis mk3 and on town only use I get 45mpg, mixed 54/55, and on a steady long run 63/65mpg. Same ground clearance as the Captiva, rear seats which fold flat and can shift fore & aft for lots of rear legroom and plenty of headroom.

Ed, I think my bubbles been well burst and I've been running on empty promises from that Matiz for a while now!
I've come to the conclusion that my old Daewoo Matiz 0.8 was a far better car than this 1 litre version.
Could be just that this specimen has been ill treated mechanically, so maybe not fair, but at the moment it's just got so many things against it that it'll have to go. I could replace the gearbox, but at the end I'll still have a car which gives poor economy, has a harsh ride and gives me electric shocks whenever I get out of it!
Looking at a Golf, Polo or maybe Peugeot 107/C1/Aygo etc.
