More honest fuel figures from Opel

Holden’s European cousin, Opel, has announced it will start providing more realistic fuel use figures for its cars a year ahead of EU legislation demanding them. From late June, Opel will publish a range of fuel use between a low and high number rather than providing an average, giving buyers a more believable way of gauging just how much fuel their new car will use once it leaves the showroom. The first car to use the new numbers is the Opel Astra, which is expected to sell here from late this year wearing Holden badges.
