    My normal route was changed for country roads as the M1 had bad traffic, and before I knew it, the MPG was mid 40's in sport mode. So I popped it into efficiency mode and got 50mpg for the last 20 mins.

    The 50mph speed limit on the road I was on tells me this is the best speed for fuel economy. I normally get 42mpg on motorway cruising.

    Did you reset the short-term memory to get this or was it the MPG for the whole trip? If the latter, that would be fantastic!

    Or were you cheating and reading off an instantaneous figure? ;) Good for an immediate feel-good buzz nevertheless.

    For the trip till just over an hour. It involved passing through villages and built up areas but mostly it was country roads limited to 50mph. I then hit M1 and increasing speed above 50mph just goes south of 50. My trips usually do 42mpg
