Re: Miles per gallon

Just to let you know the results of my mpg tests.

1. Using the fuel low light test.
Put in 9trs diesel (2 Gall) when the fuel light came on and drove 122 miles before it came on again.
61.62 mpg.

2. Full tank test.
Filled tank to capacity. Drove 314 miles before topping up again with 22 ltrs.
64.89 mpg.

Is this possible, bearing in mind when doing the tests I was very light on the throttle keeping the engine between 1500 and 2000 rpm most of the time???

I also live in Cornwall where there are a lot of hills, and I do not free wheel down hills to conserve fuel.

I will be doing the full tank test once more to see if it was a fluke.
