I hope you are all well and I would like some advice regarding this constant money pit.
I exchanged cars in March 21 for a 1.4 petrol sharan 150bhp, this car is constantly wanting me to put petrol in it, I do 52 miles a day taking my disabled son to and from school, and little bits In between but it’s costing me over 60 pounds a week, and I seriously am starting to struggle financially as I don’t work, so basically all my carers allowance goes on petrol for the week.
take this morning for instance I had 30 miles left in tank covered about 3 miles and lost 10 miles in the tank, stopped and put £15 in it so it said I had 175 miles in tank, by the time I covered about 19 miles it already dropped to 140 miles in tank.
If anyone has some great advice I would appreciate that loads or if anyone has had the same car did you have the same problems? I’m not heavy footed on acceleration, nor do I give it the beans the instrument panel says car sometimes gets over 40 mpg but that isn’t reflected on petrol costs, I just don’t get it.
