If it is any indication, my 3ltr V6 has just returned an average of 32.4mpg over a distance of just over 1000 miles mostly motorway. t one stage it was hsowing an average of 39 mpg between Berko and Heathrow T4.

Your consumption will increase drammatically if you are only doing 2-mile runs where the car doesn't even get to warm up. My 'significant other' does 2 miles to work than same back for lunch and again after lunch and is always complaining it uses too much fuel... What car? An Astra 2.2 coupe Bertone and she drives like an escaping bomb-disposal-expert. But hey, that's a 140mph 2.2 n'est-ce-pas?
