hey all i'm nick am 21 from goole in yorkshire. driving a 206 gti at the min but thinking of trading it in for a zr.always liked the look of them and rising fuel costs are crippling me, so going for the 1.4 zr, i can get 400 miles to a tank out of the 206 but thats driving at 60 on the motorway-60 mile to work n back using £50 a week

just need a few helpful answers

anyone else with the 1.4, how far does £50 get you? i have read a few people on here doing 300miles??? that driving like you stole it?

basically anyone drive on the motorway for long distances get good returns if not will be no point getting one and loosin the power i have now

thanks guys

hope to be a regular member

hello. The 1.4 is actually deceptively thirsty so don't let the engine size fool you. It should be better than your 206 gti but if you really want good economy get a TD.

lol this is what puts me off getting 1 when i see 330 miles to a tank! especially when i can just get 400 outta mine,but is this just a 1 off or many people experiance this?
