Is there any way to improve fuel economy?

My Kia Venga petrol auto 1.6 drinks petrol. Is there anything I can do to get better MPG. It's a 2016 model with only 30,000 miles on it.

Some readers report getting better economy by using branded superfuels. Not guaranteed, but worth trying. The Real MPG stats also show that the average fuel economy is only about 30mpg, versus the 40mpg official mpg figure, for your car. You can see more here: www.honestjohn.co.uk/realmpg/kia/venga-2010
