During the 50mph restrictions on the M1 around me I get above 60mpg.

Elsewhere on the motorway where I can use my right foot as I feel appropriate, ~45mpg.

I do about 400+ miles a week because of commuting, half and half reasonable speeds (50mph and above. Ahem) and town/stop n'start traffic.

I'm getting about 48mpg to 52mpg. A tank lasts me 6 days, if I only use it for commuting.

Hope that helps.
