I drove up to Scotland yesterday from Milton Keynes. 70 all the way and even with cruise control doing most of it managed to achieve 40mpg. I'm quite pleased with that.

i assume you have a 2.0l, the 2.0l can get really good mpg on motorway, i did a 90mile trip each way in mine when i had the 2.0l and it worked out at 56mpg, that was driving very very carefully thou lol, usually got 33/34mpg

Milton Keynes is a pig for economy. I only average 27mpg due to accelerating up to 70mph or braking down to 20 for a roundabout every 1.5 miles. So the get something as nice as 40mpg... well, just brilliant.

Quite happy you say that as I have to drive from st.neots to stirling in the new year. :P
Makes me feel slightly less "oh dear god" about the petrol cost.

Driving to/around Stafford (Gen3, 2.0), I'm currently getting 27mpg. Bit of a shock from the previous car which averaged 42-45 in the same conditions. :mrgreen:

Whilst on the subject of distances etc, my trip computer seemed to think that I had no more miles left in the tank, however the gauge needle was clearly only just past the quarter full mark and I'd only just passed 300 miles from a full tank. Is this a common occurrence, or is my computer being a bit of a c*ck? :mrgreen:
