Re: 83 mpg???

Mine as averaged 70mpg over 2 years best ever
was 100mpg over 20 miles from Ribblehead to
Lancaster quiet roads and a generally falling
gradient but a good achievement, I was told by
a mechanic at Renault it would do 100 mpg
if I drove at 35 mph in top, but I find its too high
geared it will do it but I never put it in top at
less than 40 It seems at its best in the 45/50 mph

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
