Hi guys,
Seen as though the new turbo engine might be completely out of my price range, I wondered what real life MPG owners were producing? I don't know if I should be conservative and choose the 1.2 s/s or the 1.4 (87)?
Thanks :)

Thanks Tracey.A,
Is the 1.2 s/s nippy by the way? I currently drive a kia picanto 1.0 but it's tuned higher than the 1.2 and I don't know what to expect power wise

Its very nippy. I had a 1.4 before and I can say I dont notice any difference.its great on long runs as well great on motorways. So much cheaper to run great on petrol

Thank you Tracey.A
I'm pushing towards the 1.2 I think because it's cheaper to buy

I'm nearly at 34 on my 1.4 non s/s. Mainly short drives though and I'm not very economical.

Hi

I have a 1.2 Adam Jam that I am totally in love with. Current mileage is about 500miles and average Mpg is 50 ......so I am more than happy with that!

I've got a 1.4 (87) non s/s, drive approx 25m per day on country lanes and A roads so roughly 50mph, and getting about 38 mpg, which I don't think is very good tbh :/

I have to say that mine is around 34/35 mpg in my 1.2 glam... That said, done just under 6000 miles in 12 months and there has been a lot of commuting and short journeys. Also, because the car is so much fun to drive, let's just say I've not had economy in mind when driving!

So my first tank is nearly empty. I have 1.4 (87) Slam, and am averaging 32mpg according to trip computer. To be honest, I was expecting more..
