hi, i have just done the maths to calculate my MPG according to my dash read out which is in litres/100km
if i do 7L/100km which is unusually low for me on an average journey (thats if i'm really trying to conserve fuel) then my calculations say i would be doing around 37.7mpg
my usual average is more like 8L/100km (that's driving comfortably and sticking to the limits) this gives me somewhere around 30mpg. please explain how you achieve 50mpg???????? as in the current climate with diesel as high as it is, this would help me greatly
