Old user, new car - Opel corsa b 1.2 16v

Had a couple of cars on this site, the last one just retired after four years' trusty service. Awesome FE, struggled to get less than 75mpg, but the high tax and insurance have forced it off the road. Now rolling in a 2000 my opel corsa b, with the 1.2 16v engine. Was getting about 5.3lhk/44mpgus on a 15% ethanol mix, gradually scaling up the alcohol to see how far it can go. Currently running 35% abv, no driveability issues and lower cost/km than on standard fuel!

Like that little car. Do you have those nearly smooth ten hole wheel covers I see in some of the pics?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
