I can't understand why some of those with a 2.2 get such low mpg.
We drove 190 miles to London the other weekend, to see my parents for a couple of days.
I drove the Civic 2.2 Type S GT, even though my wife now owns it.
We did it in 3.5 hours each way and the last 1/2 hour was in heavy traffic getting into London.
So, 380 miles done in 7 hours driving, but starting at 6am each way and the readout showed 49.2 avg' on arrival and 47.- something when I parked back home on the drive.
As the figures show, I didn't hang about.
The computer isn't out, as after 2.75 years of owning the car, I know how much diesel I put in.

Reason: petrol amended to diesel due to a daft moment.
