59mpg. That's some way off the claimed figures, but in the era of football's 'Golden Generation', aren't we used to falling short of the hype by now?By the time we reach our overnight stopover near Niort, 180km north of Bordeaux, the strong headwind and slightly over excited metatarsals have taken their toll. Only a quarter of a tank left. We've done 528 miles at an average of 61mph, and scored 54.8mpg.Next morning, as we eye the Spanish border, we quench the Insignia's tank with nearly 90 Euros of diesel after a total of 765 miles. The heat continues to rise as we penetrate Spain's final third, and head for a Portuguese speaking nation. Even with the cruising speed upped to 125kph (78mph) and the air con puffing like Emile Heskey in sprint training, the car refuses to fall under 55.2mpg.The sun starts to dip below the Porto skyline just as the fuel needle droops below halfway. We're minutes away from full time on this trip, but there's no sign of Copacabana beach. There's an uneasy tension as I recheck the Insignia's sat nav, which drains into a despair familiar to anyone wearing an England strip. Oops. We're not heading for Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This is RioTinto. As in Rio Tinto, Gondomar, a suburb of Porto.

zone a 70mph cruise down the M20 it's touch and go if we'll actually make the cut for our 12.20pm EuroTunnel crossing. So much for loyal home support.Just as 32 year old ex beetroot bottler Rickie Lambert probably didn't expect to find himself on the plane to Rio, staff photographer Otis Clay and I have defied the odds and nosed on to the Shuttle in the dying seconds of normal time.France welcomes us with grey haze, and a hint of drizzle, but it's nothing compared to the sauna like conditions England's Lions faced in their opening game in Manaus. With the Vauxhall aimed at loping French autoroutes, its fuel needle having only just moved from the stop, it's time to put some pressure on those comfort and economy credentials.The Insignia isn't representing the hopes of a nation, so much as the everyday car industry. There is no plug in hybrid trickery or active aerodynamics. Its 2.0 litre turbodiesel and manual box are no more revolutionary than the repmobiles that pounded our roads when Stuart 'Psycho' Pearce was bellowing his way into England fan folklore in the nineties.Wearing chunky Goodyear Excellence low rolling resistance tyres, and delivering 139bhp and 350Nm of torque, it's set up for wallet friendliness. Literally, the gearing is so long, the motor grumbles like a disgruntled manager's press conference as we crawl away from the French autoroute toll booths.The pay off comes at a 110kph (68mph) cruise, where the four cylinder turbodiesel is churning at a lazy 1,650rpm. Real time fuel economy (naturally relayed in metric measurements now Nike Zoom Air Basketball Shoes

´╗┐epic road trip

Few people are immune to World Cup fever. Every four years, even the most sceptical and cynical football fans can't help but feel a little pang of excitement about the most important football tournament on Earth. And there's no better place to sample the 2014 event than from the host city itself, Rio. So we packed up our kit and headed on our way to catch some of the action.Our journey kicks off at Wembley, where our chariot awaits in the shadow of the giant stadium's famous steel arch. Vauxhall, sponsor of home nations football, has provided Nike Zoom Structure 20 Anniversary us with an Insignia SRi 2.0 CDTi ecoFLEX. No, it doesn't possess the pace of Raheem Sterling or the creative streak of Adam Lallana, but it's a reliable workhorse, suited to the task ahead. Like a four wheeled James Milner.It's no coincidence that the Insignia Britain's fourth choice Vauxhall after the Corsa, Astra and Mokka has been selected for our ride to Rio. As we enter destination 'Rio' into the vastly improved new eight inch sat nav display, a 1,270 mile trip beckons. The Insignia smirks in the face of such a trek, like Cristiano Ronaldo surveying his reflection in a mirror. It has the biggest fuel tank in its class at 70 litres and with its 76.3mpg claimed fuel economy, that gives us a potential 1,175 mile range at full match fitness.This is enough to get us well on our way to the biggest football party in the world. Mind you, the on board computer is predicting a pessimistic sounding 642 miles before we even begin our journey. Here we go, here we go, here we goRoad to RioThe fuel economy is immediately dealt a damaging points deduction by the traffic as we negotiate our way out of West London. It's a typically England like start to a campaign a so called kind draw in the group stage that ends up going down to the wire. By the time the Insignia is in its comfort Nike Zoom Winflo 3 Blue
