BMW'S 318i is the winner of this year's Kwik-Fit Fleet tyre mileage table which revealed that the German model averaged 12% more miles between tyre changes than the 10th placed Volkswagen Passat 1.8.

The exact mileage clocked up has not been disclosed. In second and third spots were the Vauxhall Omega 2.0 and 2.5 followed by the Audi A4 1.8, Mercedes-Benz E200 and C180, Audi A4 1.9 TD, Renault Laguna 1.8 and 2.0.
