I have a K&N panel filter, ST200 TB, port matched UIM and Blueflame ST200 exhaust. I get 350-450 miles per tank depending on how the car is driven.
On long runs I can get 40+mpg if I drive carefully, but normally average around 32-34. In town it'll do 20-25 and if I floor it the trip comp drops to 7mpg! :D

ST200 here and we get around 24-26 around town and around 32-34 on a run.

Ofcourse this drops if I drive it hard.

To put it into context I am currently driving a V8i Discovery and getting about 12 to the gallon!!!!!

Mk1 2.5 Si here and all i know is i drive about 120 miles a week and need to fill the tank up every Friday, whether I boot it or drive Miss Daisy. Will try and find out mpg but without a trip it is hard to do.

somethin up there Oil id say. even if i drove my black one very very hard(its been done lol ) id still get about 60 miles to 20 quid.

get it serviced. oil and filter change can do wonders and change plugs/leads, clean the maf clean the secondaries etc. if its still that bad id get it on a diagnostics machine to test your lambdas etc.

If you got 350miles from £20 you'd be getting almost 70mpg. You either get your petrol very cheap or you've got a diesel st24.

Waiting for Lee to get a new sump washer so he can do an oil change. Noticed a lot of white smoke coming from exhaust but just took it for condensation in the cold. Put my hand up to tailpipe and i had a very oily feel on my hand. Could that be something to do with it Kerry

Yes the oily feel could be that its running rich.(or burning oil!! , check it :L ) do it again and smell your hand (oi, be careful :} ) if it smells very sweet it could be using water and it could be a bigger problem.But they all smoke alot of white smoke in the winter, like you said, condensation especially if you do lots of short journeys.
