    Talking Fuel Consumption!

    So on Friday, me and the missus went to Shell Island in North West Wales for a spot of camping over the weekend I did a total of 353.6 miles with a mixture of motorway and A and B roads (about a third each) also driving half mile journeys around the campsite for 3 days and got an average MPG figure of 52.3mpg, now I think that is something to be proud of, also, I was keeping up with the traffic and not holding anybody up! here are a few "car" pictures from the weekend, I apologise in advance for the gesture my girlfriend is giving in the 9th picture. Enjoy!!!

    The BC is notoriously inaccurate, but still a good figure nevertheless.

    I find they are quite accurate to actual fuel used. Normally only about half a gallon adrift and 1 mpg difference.

    Done the manual test numerous times and cant believe how close it is to the computer reading.

    Might depend on different cars thou, but i can rely on mine.

    This is what I got on a 56 mile journey average 50mph...in my 2006 1.9 cdti 120 ...ok most on motorway but some of the jouney in 5th gear also part in town.. so there is still room for improvement if i maintained 6th gear and all motorway...but i would not want to drive like an old woman all the time..it was just to see what mpg i could get.

    Yeah worked out that my BC was 1mpg optamistic so call it 51.3mpg, still mighty impressed with the figure! considering I only let the engine warm up fully on only 2 occasions, going there and coming home

    I commute 34 miles each way and achieve that figure. All on A roads and through 2 towns & 2 villages. The 1.9CDTI is amazing on fuel IMO.
