Hi Alexander-Antony,

That is high, but not unexpected I reckon.

There are a few things that you can do to try & reduce your fuel usage though; the more obvious things are running your tyres at the high end of what it says on your door placard, then there's changing the air filter & spark plugs, & leads, plus maybe get the injectors checked.

But at the end of the day, it's a petrol engine with 400K on it. It's never going to be economical to run.

Something that can make a bit of a difference to fuel usage is if the brake master cylinder is badly worn. A sign of this would be that the car stalls at idle occasionally?
