Had my car just over a week now, done 850 miles in it (including a trip to North Yorkshire with the Mrs and got engaged /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif). Love the car nearly as much as her and the gadgets are fantastic! I'm not that bothered by the fuel consumption cost as work pays but i am disappointed. My old 1.8TQ used to return 30-31mpg on a motorway run. I drove 170 miles and had cruise control set at 80mph for much of the way and it averaged 27mpg. Is this likely to improve once the engine beds in? Anyone else found the same thing? I have to admit I would normally use Optimax but had to stop off for some random petrol (garage was called Spot On or something like that) as i was running on vapour! This might have something to do with it.
