    To work and back is about 4 mile for me, lucky if I get 28mpg.

    Did a trip from Sunderland to Oban when I first got the car (Golf) though and it was coming up 50+mpg for it. More motorway miles needed...

    dont need to, email tells you where its cheapest so if passing there fill up. As for the West Auckland one we are over the Lakes 2 weekends out of 3 to go to caravan and come back past more often than not. Go over that way if been looking after the Grandsons before travelling, I fancy a pie from Barney Butchers or especially to avoid Scotch Corner roadworks last year.

    That's around 4p a litre cheaper than in Washington

    For diesel that is

    My 320d 163bhp gets me between 45-49mpg around the doors and anything up to 70mpg on a run.

    I heard you get greater fuel economy with diesel so I tried a tank full as opposed to my normal choice of petrol.
    What savings I made on fuel economy were more than wiped out with a hefty garage bill! :evil:

    Driving to work in me XC90 I get about 25mpg. If I drive conservatively I could get about 28. On a motorway run around 32 or up to 35/36 if driving miss daisy.

    Also got a Kia Ceed and get about 35 around town and up to 50mpg on a run.

    Bought a Fiat Stilo Schumacher and drove it down from Inverness about this time last year. Used a tank and a half of petrol, cost me £75 to drive the fucker home.

    Same 5 Cyl engine as in the Fiat Coupe - the one Chris Bangle designed car I actually like.

    If you want good fuel economy, don’t buy a Ford Kuga. I’m getting about 31 Miles per gallon. Shocking return for a 2l car with less than 150 bhp.

    I’m averaging 31.2 mpg in a BMW 340i.

    Fuck knows what I’m doing wrong.
