Cool Fool consumption?

I find this pole really interesting, nay hillarious. My new (to me) Laguna is currently averaging about 44mpg, which for me is execellent I had a Megane Scenic dci 105 a few years back and the best I saw from that was 47mpg during the fuel blockade in 2001, when I was driving like a vicar on mogadon! The 6spd geabox obviously helps, as does the character of the car, ie, not even slightly sporty, despite being called a sport tourer! dead comfy place to be though! As for the pole results, the one person getting 11-20mpg needs to let the handbrake off and at the other end of the spectrum, if you get better than 90mpg, try starting the engine and give up pushing!
By comparison, our other car, a mazda 5 2.0td sport with 6 spd transmission struggles to get over 40mpg. It does go like a bat out of hell though!
