Skoda fabia 03 reg Can you please tell me about the petrol

Customer Question

skoda fabia 03 reg
Can you please tell me about the petrol consumption, the one I have just bought does 250 miles for £40 of petrol but only if I stay at 60mph, at 70mph she guzzles petrol at £25 for 80 miles. I am used to a diesel 97 VW GT TDI and am finding the petrol in this smaller car twice as expensive
Thanks

Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,Hi Patricia .To get a good idea what your mileage you first need to fill the tank with petrol and reset the trip odometer to zero and drive, when the tank gets to 3/4 full refill and mark how many gallons /litters you filled with.Then with the mileage and gallons use this calculator to check your MPG ..http://www.mpg-calculator.co.uk/Then from this link you can check what your MPG should be and use this information at the dealer where you bought the car . http://www.parkers.co.uk/cars/reviews/facts-and-figures/skoda/fabia/hatchback-2000/running-costs/ Then if needed please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed. If i do not get back to you then i may be off line, and when i get back online i will get back to you.. Your deposit does not pay me until the answer is rated in a positive way, Not rating or a bad rating does not constitute a refund.
