Recently got 616 km's on mostly motorway driving, reckon could have got bit more. Found about 110 - 115 kmph the most economic speed on the motorway.
Typically get around 450 km on short Dublin city drives.

I agree, they should be far more economical, gotta love the look of them though

Best I ever got was 620kms to the tank, driving up to dublin, around the city and back down then after. Usual is about 450kms to the tank driving around killarney and on trips to Cork or Tralee, but to be honest I haven't checked in a while those figures are pretty old, been a while since i filled the tank in the tezza!

I think altezzas are kinda hard on juice compared to other 2 litre cars, but if you think about it the beams engine is pretuned and produces almost 200bhp, far more than other 2 litre engines without mods, which isn't bad considering... but there is also the looks of the thing, I struggle to find another car out there that has the attributes of an altezza, probably why I have mine so long!

My mate's Honda S2000 averages in the mid 20's with mixed driving and isn't that much quicker than my RS200 which I'm easily getting 30 out of. Add into it we've got 5 seats/4 doors and a usable boot, I'd say for the performance and practicality combined, 30mpg isn't catastrphic. The trouble with these revvy 2.0's in the Honda and the Tezza is the lack of torque, which is where the 3.2 M3 and force-fed SR20's, Impreza's etc will feel more grunty.

Have to agree with you about the s2k's, my mate has one and didn't feel a whole lot faster at the end of the day, its the way the vtec is so aggressive it feels faster, same with turbo cars when the turbo kicks in, my mate had an impreza, now has a B4 and I have to say in the turbo lag/ before the turbo kicked in they were weren't great, didn't think the B4 was that fast at all either
