Now this is savage, I put £15 of shell advance in today, 97.9P. the light had just come on before I put it in. Bit of hardish driving some steady. 54.6 miles and the light was back on, I almost used to get 40 out of a 360bhp evo

That's the Type-R for you, it must be difficult not to drive it hard!

I can't get my 1.4 that low no matter how hard I push it, it just sips fuel slowly!

Donít be such a cheapskate , the light comes on so early and if you fill completely from there you would know it!.

The only sure way of working economy is from brim to brim, fuel gauges on most cars as they get low, get cautious!

noob here..

I use my type r to travel to work - 100mile round trip, mainly M62. Put £20 in each morning & usually (just) make it home. Now I thrash the pants off my CTR every day, usually because i'm late to work, probably in VTEC zone 50-60% of time.

The estimated mileage left usually says about 50 when I get to work but that's based on how I've driven, by the time I set off back for home it's back up to about 70-80.

Once I had about 2 miles of fuel left, only £5 on me, i put in £5 worth of Total Exellium & I didn't even get an extra mile!

Anyway, V-Power 96.9p... burn baby, burn....
