Hi - I'm a newie and looking for advice on me brake pedal but i've got a V6 auto Espace (98R) and on a run from London to Swansea with the wife, baby and a boot full of luggage baby buggy etc etc etc (understand why im an espace driver!?!) and my trip computer showed that I had averaged 24MPG which although may not sound a lot has to be noted that shes an auto the cruise was set to 85mph and she was quite full - this is also pretty much the same as I was getting from the car it replaced (2.3 Saab 9000 turbo ) so all in all not bad in my opinion (round town can be a thirsty bugger mind!) but considering the engine is over half a litre bigger and it has the aerodynamics of my garden shed - still impressed with the old girl.
Currently in Gazespace's garage:
Espace RXE 3.0 V6 Auto (98R)
