    Default Weird MPG

    Errr... I'm only getting around 32 mpg at the moment.

    Admitedly, I've had my aircon on full blast and sat around in traffic a lot, and only covered 100 miles (mainly) slow moving town traffic... but 32 mpg ??? if I remember correctly my average speed was showing 13 mph

    Wonder if there is a problem, just seems unusual thats all..

    Anyway, I'm off to Excel Motorshow tomorrow so I will give it a good kickin to clear its throat..

    Oh, for those that dont know, Its the Diesel CDTi with CR1 Tuning Box - but 32 mpg is very unusual for me

    But I always have my airconditioning turned on....

    Does it actually work harder then during hot weather. I always thought it just worked the same...

    Maybe thats why my MPG has fallen off the roof...

    Yehhh OK, OK Its not my fault you went for Muscle Power....

    Oh, the only slight situation was when I covered a new Subaru Imprezza in Soot the other night , made me laugh as I caught him by surprise whilst he chatted to his girlfriend (and had his windows open), and when he appeared from the Diesel Cloud I had left above Walsall, I had turned off...

    OK, I know when I'm beaten...

    I could only get the Mundaneo to do 35mpg if I really coaxed it ( cc on motorways changing up early etc ) but the 120 CDTi Veccy is doing 41.5 at the mo and that's having its **** kicked along the motorway after battling out of London.

    Yesterday it refused to do less tha 43!!
