I know it can only be a rough guess but do appreciate even that, thankyou.
With those type of journeys you would be under you normal MPG I think. SOmeone else on here might be able to give you a better reading. you can work it out exactly from your odometer. Fill your tank, reset you trip meter then drive till it is a low as you trust, ha. Then fill back up again, note how many litres you filled up with the second time after your trip, i.e. litres you used. Then goto here:

and fill in the miles covered, litres used and price you paid per litre.

Probably the most accurate way other than guessing tbh.
