I also took my battery out to fit the winch (post to follow shortly) and now I am getting a wallet crunching ......22.9mpg!

Andy, try changing the display to US MPG, you may find your 22.9 doesn't look so bad after all!

Joins us on Fuelly, where we all show ours to each other.. :dry:

I thought it always showed up in Non-US mpg?
Unfortunately although i wud love for this to be the case, i fear it is not the case.

Mines gone the other way! Since lockdown my G3 is reliably averaging 41mpg, urban only (essential shop), normally it averages 36mpg.
Been keeping a fuel log from the first day I purchased, so it's not a fluke and not the norm for this type of journey (34 to 35mpg).

What's the reason for this?
1)Less time sitting in traffic
2)The air is cleaner and so the engine has more power.
3)The petrol companies are no longer watering it down due to low demand.
4) I've washed the Jimny so much during lockdown I've reduced it's drag coefficient.
