I did 540 km for 25€  in my grandpa's Golf mk2 with LPG (autogas)
That is average usage cause LPG-autogas  is cheap,it cost half or price of petrol.
Even my Mazda with nearly 140hp for everyday 'drink' 14L of LPG per 100km and that cost less than 7 euro
Most people in 'east' Europe driving on LPG even me but simple you can't compare experience on LPG and petrol.

spark plugs, oil change, air filter. Also you could try using a cleaner such as this which my dad has used and worked a treat, he gained about 20 mpg (14 l/km) http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_171667_langId_-1_categoryId_165750

since when do you use Euros?

lol he just made the conversion to make it easier to realise for us.

About the 323, well since I'm not the owner and not the only one driving it (just during these holidays I'm the only one) I don't know when were spark plugs changed for the last time, but oil was changed not long ago. About a cleaner, I'm quite sure it has not been used, at least not recently.

Still, I doubt it would have a really lower consumption when driving on the highway at 100+ kph. I didn't pay attention, but I feel like it had less "attention" since a few years ago, after it had an accident (my brother got hit by a blonde driving in the middle of the street from the other way, she wasn't looking at the road) the insurance declared the car was worthless, so my brother just repaired the car to make it drive well, but stopped paying much attention to it.

well, LPG is cheaper but uses more because it's more combustible. As for driving on the highway the momentum of the car is keeping it going so the engine isn't working as hard as it would when you are doing like 50-60kph

I thought it's mainly about the gear, since it's only 3 gears, driving 100+ would be quite a high consumption.

And epoxi, you didn't post any pic of your c2 did you? :D

Don't bother forcing yourself to buy under a 1.1: your choices are pretty rubbish, and you don't get much of a saving on insurance anyway.

This is my Citroen C2, it's a 1.4 giving Group 3 (out of 20) so ticks all the boxes (but only has four seats) and despite modifications still has nice low premiums.



I ended up with a French car because I fell in love with it, but from a practical point of view, I'd aim for Japanese cars like the Yaris.

french cars have expensive spare parts

Peugeot-Citroen ("PSA") cars are very popular, so you can easily find cheap parts from scrapyards and eBay. :)

Even then, I have bought new interior parts for my car directly from the Citroen garage and they have been reasonably priced. I think I bought a new trim ring for the gear stick and "CITROEN" logo for the back of the car for £15.

Why you guys hide plate on cars?
Nobody would investigate you or even your car if you didn't do way too much when they dare to use forum like this one...

Also take some picture of that e28,its pretty rare at this time
