16-22 Phew!!

Iím on a Lag2 2.2 dTi manual so comparing it with mine wonít really help you.

I think itís difficult comparing MPG, even with the same makes & type of car because of road conditions, and driving styles.

A much fairer figure would be obtained by getting on the M/way zero the MPG puter straight away after hitting top gear, then drive at a steady speed say 60 MPH, get off at the next junction then travel back in the opposite direction at the same speed, check your MPH when you get back to the junction you started out from. This will take into account the ups and downs of the M/way.

Iíve done this when Iíve seen disappointing figures in town traffic conditions in the circumstance of the above on the M/way the figure went from 31 Ė34 MPG up to a tad under 60MPG

I wish I did more clear, M/way driving.
