so my low mpg isn't normal then , before i had kids , i had a classic impreza wrx uk 2000 that was only running 242 bhp an that did 19 mpg an my other bug eye impreza was running 285 bhp an made 18 mpg , after i sold the pair to make way for a family wagon as my wife wanted to breed i bought a vrs estate running 230 bhp an made 28 mpg ,
so was shocked with the 16 mpg from the 167 bhp slug .
have had it in to a auto electrics garage a mate works at an plugged it in , an other than the air bag light that i know about , all was well

To the op - I've owned a 3.0l v6 auto and a 2.5td auto at the same time. Nothing between them in running costs, day to day.  If you must go diesel, it really, really, really has to be a manual. And chipped.

I was getting 24mpg from the 3.0l v6, and 28ish from the TD on my (then) 50mph, 23m commute in. Diesel is more expensive, and has higher servicing costs.
still huge amount better than i have been getting , my 2.5 is doing 16.5 on average , no mods an had a full service an all breathers an inlets been of an cleaned . so to 30 quid getting 50-70 miles range

no evidence of cam belt , have checked it an still looks in good condition , but yes a worry . as always usually change cam belt an water pump after purchase of most my cars ,
the problem i have is its not the colour interior i wanted an dont really like the dash on the phase 2s .
An as i said before with the wife off, don't really want to waste a small fortune on the car as not 100 % with it,
as is owes me 850
i know i should have waited , but it looked mint when i viewed it an thought i can change all the bits i want too later on
but keep forgetting i have another young'un here so no free funds like before for at least another year
so would be easier/cheaper to just buy one with everything already fiited , only after a 2.2 .dti phase 1 with black half leather .

Afternoon all ,

Right ill start by saying this isn't an add, I really do want some help ,
I love my omega but with the wife off work with our new born , I need to lower the costs, plus i really want a phase 1 diesel omega.
Prefer the dash an looks , my fault really should have looked around for a few more weeks ,
So i have put the omega on ebay for what i think its worth . been on a week an not one call or even txt ,
never had this before always sell within a few days .
a couple mates say its because iam too honest but have always put everything on the listing,
so any constructive feed back would be more than appreciated ,
as i only have a month left on insurance an wanted to have my new omega by then ,   

Link removed

cheers all

an don't hold back .
