I had a 2016 insignia 1.6 CDti (vxline nav) so same engine. I couldn’t get anywhere near 70mpg. Around town it’s was 40 and a long run at 65mph was 51-55 max

Was quite quick though for a 1.6 as they’d changed the gearing from my previous insignia 2.0cdti

I know the insignia is quite a bit heavier than the Astra so it should get a bit nearer, it’s in the book as being able to average 78mpg but anything over 60mpg I’ll be very happy with

We have a couple running, while the dashboard shows 69 mpg, calculated over 6000 mile it’s only 57,8 mpg, not bad, but not what it says on the tin.
This over a mixture of short and long distance, 1 driver, 1 vehicle.

Not a bad car, drives ok, it’s not a Ford, but for day to day it’s ok.

I picked up almost the same car 2 weeks ago! Mines a 64 plate 2.0 though. Was very swirly when I got it so gave it a bit of TLC on Saturday. I'm no detailer and don't have a DA or anything but used what I had in and looks a lot better now. Washed with Autoglym shampoo.. applied some Farecla G3 to try and sort some of the swirls out followed by Poorboys BH and topped with Bilt Hamber DSW. I was happy with the results.

Looks good, I’m assuming that’s the same colour as mine (although don’t actually know what that is at the minute)

Can’t wait, even the dealer is happy as I’ve told him not to waste his time covering it in silicone
