80 in the 2 litre??? Crikey, I expected it to be something slightly smaller... Mine is 80 and mine is 2.5 (though you'll see in a thread-to-be I'm having doubts about that..)

It most certainly does. Once the cash is in the tank you kinda feel like the car is becoming economical - especially when you hit the computer reset and it starts calculating the estimated mileage remaining - the numbers keep going up and up..

Something wrong with your car then N7 mate. Mine is 2.5 with an 80 litre tank and I get 440 out of it aswell. If my engine is .5 litre bigger than yours and you're managing the same mileage as me on the same size fuel tank then you've got a problem I reckon. I ain't the lightest on the pedal either and I'm known to use sport mode quite frequently..
