    On average what real MPG do you get? i.e. calculated not from the DIS?

    I'm getting 30/31 on combined driving, quite a few short journeys when she's not fully getting up to temperature though.

    I must admit, I no longer measure it exactly. I take my figures from the DIS, and mentally subtract a couple of mpg. On that basis, mine ranges from about 34mpg in mixed daily driving, to around 43mpg on a steady 70-plus motorway cruise. What I do find gratifying is that if a busy motorway forces me to cruise at 60-ish, the figure can go up to nearly 50mpg. That kind of makes up for the frustration.

    day to day, about 35 (ish).

    If I go on a long journey and sit at 70, low to mid 40's is achievable

    I'm averaging 30/31 mpg over the last 10 tankfulls.

    I do a lot of short town journies though.

    On a long motorway run I can get about 40+
