There you are then Si., 55mpg with a full wagon pulling a load! The steady 55 says it all. BTW, you don't actually save [much] by 'leaving it running'. You can start it as many times as you like as long as the block is hot! Its COLD running that kills it. Also a 'heavy' foot on the pedal even though your average speed stays low!

The turbo is selective (being controlled by exhaust gas speed.) I suppose the truth is that the Epace is a car for the open road. tell me how you get on with the tuning check!
