the run length is important, watch the temp guage, it takes my car about 3 miles til it reaches 90 degrees......long runs are better as is time, I got significantly better MPG as the mileage rose, now I can get high 60's on average on a reasonable run, around 50-52 round town and I've had as low as 39 driving like a hooligan!
if you have M&M, try the blue monitor display and see the mpg climb!
Thanks for all the info mpg. No I haven't go a heavy right foot and haven't yet gone over 70 mph as I say only done short runs so look forward to better mpg on longer runs. Haven't got M M Would love it but am told it cannot be fitted at a later date on a move up. Is thIs right?
30 years ago I studdied 100 miles away from home.
I didn't have much money, so I drove "economically" with my old VW Polo ...
Driving about 60 mph on the motorway was an excellent speed to do this!
Beyond 60 mph the fuel consumption of my old Polo significantly increased.
