Six Hundred & Twenty Three [Dot] Two Miles

I’m rather proud of this one, as it’s the first time since owning my SAAB 9-3 TTiD i’ve achieved over 600 miles from a single tank of fuel.

Having put 55 litres in at the same D.T.E that works out at around 51mpg –  cool.

I must confess, this did include a 300 mile round trip to pick up a 9-3 SportsCombi for my wife, thus travelling at a very steady 70 most of the way, but the rest of the tank has been used up with city driving, so not bad for a combined figure.

It’s still a good way off the official SAAB combined consumption figure of 62.8, but with all of the Hirsch engine upgrades, exhaust, large wheels etc, I’m really happy.

If you’re interested in how the SAAB is generally performing, mpg wise, i’ve got an ongoing record here.
