My Astra 1.8 was like that. I reckon on NORMAL driving the VXR is better on fuel than my 1.8 SRi G :( If your having fun however, the G was far better on fuel as you can imagine. :lol: Slightest blip of the throttle and the VXR loses 10miles range from the trip :eek: :(:(

Alot of people swear by "tap and coast", where you accelerate to the set speed then coast, then tap the throttle to get to set speed again then coast again, and so on and so on. Very handy with Toyota Prius drivers :lol:

Don't think I ever got over 300 miles out of my sri 200t. I used to hate filling it up with fuel and see the range at only 280 miles :(. Got quite a heavy, no, make that a very heavy right foot.
