Best forget koda UK's official fuel-efficiency figures then.
I drive a 2010 koda Fabia 1.6 TDI CR 105PS (77kw engine) when my V6 quattro avant isn't hauling the boat - (emissions similar to an E-Type Frigate.)
The Fabia costs £20 road-tax and about £45 to fill the tank. That equates to a maximum 500 mile range on a mix of A-class and motorway driving as long as you don't have a heavy right-foot. Fuel consumption, then expect minimum of mid-50s mpg. Should be able to get a MKII Fabia Monte Carlo, say 2011/12 with 30k miles for £7,500.
