That's what I just got from a full tank of fuel in the 180, and I could of squeezed some more out as well but didn't want to push my luck. Went down to Bodyflight in Bedford Thursday and just tried to keep her at a nice 65 ish most of the way (wasn't in any rush).



Is that any good then folks? What's the most some of you lot have got out of 180's?

Well mine's a little poorly, got a slight misfire somewhere, tried all the usual routes but I am still trying to track it down without spending a fortune.

Nice, best I got out of mine was 340 miles, doing same thing on motorway.

I'm guessing these days even though a ZS180 doesn't have a huge tank it must still cost something like £70 to fill up.

I think mine is about £65 from nearly empty although it's usually about £58 as I never let it get right down.
The 360 miles was done on Momentum 99, so maybe there is some truth in the 'get more miles from a tank' saying!

The best I've had from mine (doing normal motorway driving) was 333.1 - Dartford to Birmingham for POL 2010 then back again. I would've got more if I'd been lighter footed but petrol wasn't as expensive then ;)

I once worked out that I got 42mpg on a long run to Scotland, dont remember all the numbers. I maintained 65 mph for the majority of the journey!

It was a damp, rainy day, and so not suitable for 'fast' driving.

The best I got on a long run was 388. I keep trying to beat that but after I have used half a tank a road that "wants" you to hit the loud pedal appears and screws my MPG :biggrin:

420 in ZT 190 Manchester to Andover, left early so sat at 3k all the way 73 mph

350 on town driving, clearly the gearing is a little better for long runs.

However the race car (ZS) can do 80 minutes on a full tank of super plus......

when I was on a trip to Croatia I make 345m/555km twice, full boot and 2 people , used backroads. After that never archive this because I want to hear V6 roar. :)
