Tyres can have a significant effect on fuel consumtion. Both mak of tyre and sizes. The owners handbook for our Mondeo has fuel consunption figures for every model in the range. For example a 2.0 Ghia has tyres 2 sizes wider than a 2.0LX & it does 2.6mpg less.
Some tyres are advertised as "Fuel saving".
I have had my Laguna II 1.6 on the road for just over a week, getting about 42mpg.
