    well i do my lifetime average is 42mpg but i do drive very slowly for most of the time without the climate control on windows shut etc... plus i run her on superunleaded too , on my way to early edition i was getting 49mpg @ 70 mph so not bad i think

    My Climate is always on mind, also run her on crappy supermarket unleaded. I started running her on Shell FuelSave and I was actually seeing a difference.. may go back to it tbh.

    yeah i only use the climate on hot days im bit of a tight arse lol , i used to drive around like you with it on all the time but with the price of fuel nowadays got to save every penny i know it doesnt make much of a difference on modern cars but everylittle helps , i would i run mine on either tesco or shell v-power males the engine run very smoothly as on normal unleaded mine was a little lumpy
