    Unfortunately yes, big car with 150 horses!

    As people on here will say, make sure it's serviced (oil and air filter make a big difference), tyres pumped up correctly,oh and a very light right foot.

    Also, I've found the BC to be reading high on mine.

    I've just put in some BG244 fuel cleaner which helped a bit!

    Oh, welcome to the club!

    as stated above- a light right foot is your best bet.......but hard to do when you can feel the power waiting to be unleashed ;-)

    Has it been serviced? Winter driving to reduces the MPG.
