How do you guys manage this MPG ;D
Even with Eco on and gentle acceleration, behind lorries on the motorway, I can only get it up to 60 - 62 mpg.
Normally I average 480 / 40L - The best I ever got out is 540 / 40L.
The car is 2 year old (16 plate), i-dtec, serviced according to the book.
My drive is 17.5 miles one way, out of which 12 miles is through the M5.
Another drive in the day is 10 miles, which is through A roads / 70 limit, numerous traffic lights.
Even on a longer drive from Luton, which was 110 miles, ECO mode on, economic driving, not exceeding 70 - from a full tank, managed to get it up to 65 somehow. This trip was 95% nonstop driving at 60 - 70 behinds lorries. (Just this trip)
Is there something wrong the car?
