Hello everyone I'm hoping to be able to learn and help others on this forum. I live in the Uk at the moment I own a Vauxhall Astra 1.4 and a Hyundai H1 2.5 turbo diesel van. I'm hoping to improve the fuel economy on my van right now, cause the Astra is pretty economical.

the astra, mine is white. I get about 400 miles to the tank full, 50 liters, about 13 gallons. That is highway and city driving . The prices of gas here is a lot more than the states, Today gas is at £1.16 a liter in pounds which is about $2.32 in dollars. So thats about $8.76 a gallon. Diesel is at £1.30 a liter
