The Vauxhall Astra is a secure investment because it is very fuel efficient and environmental. The Vauxhall Astra consumes an average of 30 Miles Per gallon plus.

Miles per gallon for the Vauxhall Astra 1. 6 ranges from 39mpg to 41mpg. These numbers vary based on the exact model from this line of vehicles.

if it's a petrol model then it's every 40,000 miles.

60,000 MILES is about right for ANY engine with a Rubber belt.

vauxhall recommend 100,000 miles or ten years

You fail to list the year which is very important. The required replacement of the belt can be as little as 60,000 miles to as much as 120,000 miles. Without the year, I cannot say. I suggest you contact your Vauxhall dealer or look in your owner's manual. If your engine is an Interference engine, and the belt breaks, serious engine damage will occur. Do not neglect this service.

The vauxhall astra vxr gets an average of 29-31 miles per gallon on highways and averages between 21 and 25 miles per gallon on city roads. With the gas prices so high these days, this average is phenomenal.

It should be done every 40,000 miles this is what the main and local dealer has told me.

If it's Z20LET then yes it has a cam-belt as opposed to a chain and think recommend changing every 36000 miles or so

60k, 80k or 100k, depending on the engine type. Vauxhall have more than one 1.7 diesel engine. Phone a dealer, have the registration and chassis number to hand, and ask.

Every 60000 miles or 6 years. The tensioner pulley must also be replaced at the same time.
