Mine too! 10p a mile is a lot for a 1.2, but mines not even getting that! Yet when me and the missus went touring in summer I was getting 370 miles to a tank which was 32! So its either short journeys or my induction kit has killed fuel economy.

Its gone up 10P here in the last 3 months.

Last week I put 20 in and got 125 miles out of it, but I was stoned nearly all of last week so I cant remember if I accidentally reset the trip counter.

eh 10 gives me 100 miles in a 1.4 16v

it used to give me 115 miles b4 induction.

its strange cause it matches my old 1.0 for fuel, but the 1.4 engine is 6 yrs older and 60 000 miles more wiser than the 1.0???
