    I’ve recently bought a Zafira 1.6 16v (2008) I love the car as its perfect of my family, but I have a little concern: I filled the tank up, reset the counter, just to see what MPG I was getting, I managed to get 140 miles from half tank, i feel this is very poor, I was doing long and short journeys, I also noticed that when travelling at 70mph my rev counter was in between 3500 – 4000 rpm. Is this correct? Please help

    Many thanks

    Nick

    would think that will be about right , the reason is that a 1.6 is a quite a small engine for something as potentially heavy as a zafira ( 7 people in it ) so it is lower geared to allow it to have a bit of pull ,otherwise you would be up & down the box at the slightest incline when laoded .

    sounds normal to me, my Zaf A runs at around 3750rpm at 70mph, i get about 200 mile to half a tank round town, Usually get 29mpg round town with lots of short journeys, on a run it usually does around 35
