    Default 2.2 Direct MPG

    Just returned from a trip to Blackpool with the wee fella.Around a 450 mile round trip for me.Set off with a full tank and set the cruise control at around 74/75mph (on the motorway!).Got a return of 38.2 mpg on average for the journey and done it on the one tank of fuel.Not as good as a diesel,I know,but good none-the-less.My car is an 04 plate with 30K miles. Is that what others are getting??
