Hi I thought Id give an update on the MPG performance of my 2 month old 1.4 Avant BE. Ive been getting 60.1mpg as a maximum high, this is with air con on a low settings and the radio on. Ive not been actively trying to achieve a great figure but it does show what is achievable form this small engine as an option away from the more expensive diesel models. Today my commute over 25 miles gave a 58.9 average, it was 60mpg but the slip road off the motorway was up hill and dropped as I cruised around the car park looking for a space. I think thats pretty good ace.
