    It's pretty good I'd say. I can get 46 mpg around town but I have to drive like Clarkson did in that Audi. Actually very difficult to do all day. I lasted a couple of hours before I thought sod this lark.

    One thing (I know) I was lazy at was changing into a higher gear asap. The Eco change gear light thing on the missus car is permanently on when I drive it. I think it's because of years of driving turbo diesels and keeping within too narrow a power band.
