Thanks Doax.

At the moment I'm doing 85% urban driving and 15% freeway and averaging what Opel claims is the Corsa's combined or average cycle so my urban driving figures are equal to Opel's combined cycle which is around 5.5 liters per 100kms (+-18km per litre) using the metric system. Thats about 32 mpg. This is using 95 octane, highest octane we get this side. It almost sounds too good to be true but I have a certain route I travel every day and coasting and streetlight timing is second nature by now. I will check out the link and make use of it for sure.

I thought the best way to start is to do a trip on a full tank, writing down my distance traveled. First step maybe is to make sure everything works as efficient as possible. Maybe something like an engine clean, replacing of filters, wheel balancing ect. to make sure all the basics are in place and in order. Vehicle currently have 44.910 miles on the clock.
