62.5 mpg on a run from Liverpool to North Yorks. But that was in the last car. This car is the same but only done 6k miles and only got 60 mpg on the same run.

Not bad going! You got a tuning box fitted or is it re-mapped? Or is it downhill all the way?

Standard, mate. No mods yet. Wifey won't let me and I can't sneak a remap past her, she'd know as soon as she got in it! She can smell things like that!

Thinking about a tuning box though. sekret.gif169144-ok.gif

What is wrong with my car?

I don't think I have ever seen an average for a trip of more than 45mpg. confused.gif

Sure, I see the odd 100+ on the instant read out, but this never translates into a decent overall avarage sekret.gif

I never get over 50mpg on a journey. I've been recording fuel consumption since I got the car and it's still averaging 40mpg after 8000 miles. No sign of it improving over time. frown.gif

I'n only managing about 46/7 mpg(according to DIS) equating to 500 miles per tank. Daily journey consists of 35 miles each way at mixed speeds, including motorways.

Only every manage to get 50ish litres when completely empty (55litre tank). Forgot to see if this could be adjusted when services last week.
