cos thats more than the book MPG of my 1.6 SXE
I only get that if doing a good run on the motorway. My average is showing 27mpg
38mpg flippin heck, i'm lucky to get 30!!
8 valve- insurance group 11, 16valve- insurance group 14. 0-60, 8 valve- 9.4s standard. 16 valve- 7.6s standard.
Were you driving Miss Daisy ?!!!
I average about 28mpg.
Well thats what the counter said lol.
I wasn't driving like a granny, but I wasn't driving quick either lol
To be fair I have had 40+ out of mine when I drove very very very carefully
the 8v will give a half decent mpg assuming u dont boot it all the time and let it warm up properly etc
unfortunatley as much as i love the mk2, my next car is going to be a mk4 ibiza
the pull of a tdi 130 on insurance group 8, giving 50+mpg and 0-60 in 9 sec is too strong
Not quite, the 8v Cupra is group 11, the 8v GTi is only group 10.
and the 16v is group 12
Crazy how a cupra's group 11 and a gti's group 10.
Not too sure about that. I know that some places advertise the GTI 16v being a 10. And the Cupra/ cupra gti being a 14. Maybe the 1.8 16v's were a IG 12. But once again, its a Pedro special lucky dip as to what Ibiza is what and the insurance group it is
ah well,. I have a Mk2 'Cupra Sport GTi' (8v) and it costs me a smidge over £300 quid fully comp to insure, even with the missus ( see siggy for miss Daisy) on.. and seems Ive been booting up and down from Brum to Shrewsbury a lot lately Ive been avearaging abot 28 mpg.... (but its worth it for the grin factor )
when using my 16v to work and back (70miles round trip) i average at 35 - 38 mpg using the 2nd trip thing and calculating it over a full tank!! (therefore several days) however as said above it can also get pretty low at the weekends!! lol
If you were interseted in the acceleration differences, there's a vid of my 8v vs a mates 16v at Santa Pod located in the Video section of the forum. Gives you a bit of a comparison up to 85mph ish
Oi Smithy, crawl back under your stone !!!
Where you been hiding ?!?
he's been to SKOOL fella .. OLD SKOOL...
on a quiet run to blackpool i've managed 35/38 ish
lowest i've seen on screen is 8
