My last car did 26 mpg the Clio 80 dci I have now
as averaged 74 mpg over the last 4000 miles and
a few times over 80 mpg, this is worked out full tank
to full tank, but it helps that I dont do many short
runs and rarely sit in traffic. It does more by quite a
bit than my 650 Kawasaki at first I thought the fuel
gauge was not working but a trip to the garage
with 200 miles from full and only getting just over
2 gal in proved it was ok. The trip shows the correct
miles tested with a GPS.
I am no speed merchant but do keep up with traffic
and dont hold people up, I am sure the thing would
crack 100 mpg if you sat at 40 mph, but you would
die of boredom or even starvation before it ran out
of fuel.

Currently in Ralph's garage:
Clio 15 DCi 80, Kawasaki W800, Yamaha MT-07, LMS 5MT 3 1/2 inch Gauge.
