    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 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 :lol:

    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
