Ok. So half a fill and 200 miles later [100 of school runs, 100 of 65mph/55mph motorway/a road journey oop north] resulted in 27 mpg!!!!!!

So we filled up monday, and endured a traitorous 100mile journey South. As yet we have not filled the tank, but the slow 40mph pace made quite a difference to the 'on board' readout.

However I would argue this is an 'extra urban' scenario, and it falls more than 10% short!?!? Still I am not complaining too much, it is more than acceptable if that is the 'real' consumption.

I wonder whether the shell 95 that is in it now makes any difference to the Tesco stuff we have used so far?!!?
