Depends on what sort of traffic conditions you experience and how heavy you are with the right foot.....
2 examples..
(1) When I moved from rural Wiltshire to urban Surrey in 1990, I had a Rover 820 manual. Used to get mid-30's mpg in Wilts, dropped to around 20mpg in Surrey
(2) Parents had a Volvo 145 Auto; did around 27mpg when mum used to take bro and me to school and back. When we went on to uni, and she used it basically just to go shopping locally, this fell to about 15mpg
Currently in Ivor_E_Tower's garage:
2014 Captur dCi EDC; 2014 Ka 1.2 Zetec; 2015 C-Max 1.6 TDCI
