    I've done around 7000 miles in my 3.0 Signum and I've averaged 34.6mpg overall. 6 speed manual and I never drive slow

    Sounds like a VERY good figure Benny, especially for an Auto ... mine is a manual hatchback and I have never seen more than 45

    Here we go again

    45 mpg from a V6 auto?

    Na, you probably aren't doing the readings properly mate, takes 80+ miles before the true reading starts to emerge, mid 30's tops IMO.
