That's absolutely fantastic - so how exactly do you calculate the fuel consumption exactly at 60 mph - do you have a fuel flow meter fitted.

maybe i should say at mostly 60mph. fill up at my local morrisons then gently up to 60 as soon as i leave the garage, get to work do a days work and drive home. do that 5 times and thats about 68-69mpg at 60. doing the same trip at 70 its about 50mpg. but that does include coasting down hills etc...

Best thing is to adopt a flowing style of driving, let
it accelerate down hill and use the speed gained to
clime the next hill, drive well ahead let the car slow it's
self try to arrive at a stop as traffic clears. Get up the
gears as soon as you can but don't make it labor,
Modern engines cut the fuel completely on the over
run so don't knock it out of gear, once you get into it
you will be surprised how much better your MPG will
be and you can make surprising progress not holding
others up.
If interested visit the Fuely web site you can track
yours and others MPG click on my little fuely pic.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.

I worked it out on the onboard liar , Noel, but also with fuel used. I previously checked its readings doing the full tank/drive/refill syndrome and it seems very honest to me. Ive had about 15 cars with onboard readouts and theyve all worked pretty good, even old Monzas and a celica supra.
I dont know how people manage to get low 30's(blocked air filters aside,etc), but then again im very lenient in the right foot dep't.
Same on my bikes, I always get way more than the "reviewers" get.Currently got a Triumph sprint with onboard computer which is excellent.
I think right foot useage is the key item in mpg, I commute on my bike at 2000rpm ish, some people always do double that
