in our other car (ford focus) a full tank is just over £40 and we can EASILY get to north devon (from west sussex) in it... and only have to fill up on the way home (after driving round there too)

I fill mine upevery week and it costs around £40 I think (have a Beetle). Not sure how many miles I do on it though - about £320-350 miles maybe.

DH's new Golf GTi is very similar - same size tank. If anything his car is slighly more efficient.

my mondeo is a 1.6 and drinks petrol... about £45 to fill up and about 300 miles.

Borrowing my dad's Hyundai 1.3, it had 1/4 of a tank when i picked it up and filled it to overflowing with £18.80 today! Dad reckons i should easily get 350 miles out of it!

havent filled my car full yet, but £20 will do around 220-250 miles according to the onboard computer thingy.
