    I have averaged between 27-28over the last 100,000 miles. Since I moved to the wilds of Norfolk the MPG around town has gone down but on my frequent trips to London I am averaging around 30

    I get low 20's with the vxr I reckon you would easily get mid 20's unless you enjoy the power.

    Do you do much motorway miles? I get 260 to a tank. When I had the gsi you were getting a good return aswell.

    I'd say 3/4 motorway and 1/4 town driving

    Highest I've got was 386 miles all motorway driving, and a few blasts along the way

    Going courtenay Monday so will see how much I get driving 60-70 mph

    The elite will be an auto, so depending on your driving your looking at anything from 16 up to 30 ish


    I average 18, but most of my driving is stop start. On a run I get 28 to 30
