WOW. Amazing MPG Scenic 1.6 petrol

Heres one to make all you diesel drivers weep.

I have just serviced my 02 Scenic 1.6, new oil and filter, air filter and new plugs. gave it a bottle of redex over the past couple of weeks and just filled it up with super unleaded.

Took it for a run to Manchester today and all I can think is WOW.

I reset the computer when i filled up in Bolton, then set off along the M61 then onto the East Lancs and the MPG reading just kept on going up and up and up. I hit 48.3 approaching Manchester then it started dropping slowly. When i got back to Bolton the reading was 43.1.

BUT.... It is Sunday and the roads were clear, and most of the lights on the East Lancs were in my favour, but even so thats better than Renaults figures.

I don't think the computer is wrong either as before i serviced it i was getting about 30mpg.

No doubt it will drop again though through heavy town traffic.
