    I do 68 miles a day, 5 days a week from Luton to West London. 50% motorway and have been getting around 30 mpg average. £80 a week without going anywhere else.

    I went to Heathrow from Plymouth last week and got 400 - 410 miles to a tank and average MPG said 31.3 :)

    Usually I get around 350-370 and anywhere from 28-20 mpg, mixed 60mph roads and stop/start traffic jams weekly

    The average number on the DIS usually floats between 26-28.
    I get about 270miles to a full tank, usually fill up when the counter shows 20miles to emtpy.
    Thats mixed motorway and town driving.

    I've worked mine out properly as suspected the dis was lying to me but over 4 tanks have had 14-19mpg but generally my car does hardly any motorway miles and most of the driving it gets its driven fairly hard :whistle:
    Also bigger tubby properly contributes ;)

    If you do a search, this has been covered many times before.

    As people have said, depends on how you drive it. On a long motorway run sticking to 70mph many of us have got 500 miles out of a tank which equates to 37mpg. If you want to use your bhp all day every day you can pretty much halve that.

    Vpower means an £80 full tank. It usually takes me around 330 miles and I certainly don't drive like ms daisy.

    If driven under 2500rpm, you'll see significant mileage improvement... towards 400 and beyond.

    Like the guys say, it's all about driving style and in 3 years I have still haven't been able to resist the throttle on any one tank.

    I would also say that my economy has been greatly enhanced by the new hybrid and manifold. My estimated range currently is at 450miles which is insane considering how I've been driving it today. I guess it's because the car isn't working as hard to achieve the same results.
