I live out in the sticks and so no traffic jams but do have long hills that car goes up regularly & I normally get 39 - 40 mpg.
Just returned from an extended holiday with 3 adults aboard and every other space in car fully loaded from floor to roof with luggage plus a completely full roof box.
Covered over 5,000 miles in 2 months with half the mileage on European motorways at speeds usually 70 - 80 mph and average over this period was 36.8mpg.
I don't usually race away from traffic lights and try not to exceed speed limits on any roads (can't afford the fines!!).
I was not too happy with mpg as I was getting between 50 - 60 mpg with my previous car, a Golf diesel automatic.
Perhaps I shouldn't grumble.
