I rocked up to a convenient petrol station last night with the fuel light on and found I had left my wallet at home. Very cross and had to creep home and get it and then creep down to the local place. Needle off the bottom and put 37.9 litres in. Not my finest hour.

I didn't christen her Dreadnaught for any old reason, she puts up with me and my sleep deprived bad decisions on a daily basis and thinks nothing of it. I love my car!

Following a VERY scientific return trip from Bristol to Scotland this week:

Motorway, not much traffic, 50mph on M6 contraflows/roadworks, mostly cruise control on (Waze) 60mph on the way up: 44.9mpg

Motorway, not much traffic, same 50mph on M6 contraflows/roadworks, mostly cruise control on (Waze) 70mph on the way back: 35.4mpg

All done from 10 miles after the fuel light comes on, and filled to the visible brim.

I get 35.5 / 36.5mpg on the trip computer. Here is my point, average speed is 14mph (short town runs) What is your average speed? to get a reading of 40+mpg. Auto or manual? Thanks.

I get 5.9l/100km on average, so about 47mpg if I calculated correctly.

That's good mpg! Looks like you do a lot of miles, but how does 100km a day = 1500km a month?
