Now then chaps.

Greetings from the UK! I stumbled across this site last week and it's great! Love the "Garage" very well.

Decided it was time to do something about my fuel economy, as it isn't exactly cheap anymore (despite me getting the cheapest diesel in the UK). I'm paying 4.77 per UK Gallon | $5.89 per US Gallon.

I drive a Vauxhall (Opel / Saturn) Astra, 2 litre diesel which offers around 120ps & book mpg (comb) figure is 49(uk) - 40.83(us). I've had the car for aroun 2 and a half months, and am getting great fuel eco - upto 51 usmpg so far.

At the moment the car is completely standard, but mods will come eventually!

Let me know what you think, and check out my fuel log!
