I have been offered at a very good price a 2001 Opel Zafira: low mileage. very clean, engine looks and sounds good and very dry, i.e. no sign of oil. No NCT, thouhg assured that with two new back tyres and a back window wiper it will pass.
My question is, how are these automobiles on petrol?

Is that the 1.8-litre engine? If so, then it had an official fuel economy figure of 32mpg. I say ‘had’ because that’s a 16-year-old automobile and a huge amount is going to depend on how well it’s been looked after. Generally speaking, I’d say that you should expect around 25mpg from it around town, and maybe 35mpg on a longer run.
