    If you drive easy you'll get the 30 miles.

    I drove 80 miles on the red light sitting at 60mph all the way - thats a 1.9 derv tho.

    Nudged my red light up to 100 miles yesterday travelling up the M6.

    Brought her down to 60mph and stuck cruise control on but gave up at Tebay Services and stuck £20 in at 151.9p/litre! :(
