Smile 1.6 16v scenic MPG

dont know how accurate the trip computer is but i got a scenic 1.6 16v a few weeks ago and before i serviced the engion (plugs, oil and filters) and replaced the coils ,
the trip computer said about 30 to 35 mpg

after said work it now say's 35 to 40 city and if i realy take it easy on the moterway i can get it to say 52 to 55 mpg with 6 adults in the car

realistically the M/way is about 40 to 45 though!

please also note! The reason i did this work was to get it through a MOT that it failed on VERY high emisions

it's surprising how much differance a good service makes!
