are u actually running it bk down to empty as in it cuts out when u say u only get 35 miles or do u mean ur fuel needle has gone bk down to low.because if your only puttin a tenner in at a time it will seem as tho the needle is goin down quicker.if that makes sense.i always found that anyway.run it till empty an ave a spare can in the boot to see how many miles ur really gettin.if not its gotta be leakin lol
£10 isnt fuk all, its like 8 litres or sumin now. my old 1.2 had a fooked fuel pump and i was getting around 15mpg, due to it doubling its pressure, was fine after that until the temp sensor went which also caused s**t mpg.
different brands of petrol wont realistically make a difference.. maybe, going from the roughest of ghetto fuel, to the highest premium you can find, 2-3% better MPG presuming identical driving conditions.
Do you warm the car up idling for 5 mins, then drive 500m to work ? what sort of driving gives you ~16mpg ?
fuel pump could to be a good call ... double pressure tho ? WTF !
tenner at a time ? really ?! fill it up to the brim. properly full .. then wait til the red light comes on .. (by the sounds of it, this wont take more than about a days driving lol) then fill it to the brim again .. work out your actual MPG from a full tank.
If it's approaching single figures still, then get it to a trustworthy garage ASAP.
