I'm a newbie on this site so hope someone car help with some information on very poor MPG from my wife's 2006 Grand Vitata 1.6 VVTI.
I've been driving it for a few weeks now and have noticed that it returns alarmingly poor MPG for a small 1.6L engine. Around town it gives around 21 mpg, and on a motorway run ( with the speeds around 56 - 60 mph, it only gives 25/26mpg ).
I've asked my wife when the car became this thirsty, but as she normally fills up with £30 - £40 at a time and doesn't check the distance from the tank of fuel, she didn't realise it was so poor.
The car only has 23,000 miles on the clock, and has been well looked after, but I'm now very concerned that something may be wrong to give such low MPG. It's never been as low as this till recently so I'd appreciate if anyone can chime in with any reasons ?
