    Thumbs up very proud of the gsi this morning

    Had to do a 40 odd mile trip for work this morning and managed to average 33.4 mpg on the journey no motorway just all A roads. Managed to resist putting my foot down all the way here lol

    I find that simply accelerating gently, as most commuters do, and driving at the speed limits on an open road or MW gives 33mpg [or more] on the computer.

    is that working it out by the trip computer or by using a calulator as i did 700miles the other week trip computer says average of 32,5 or their abouts but when i did the math i was doing 26mpg thats 500 mile motorway and 200mile A roads
    its just short journeys to work and back where i get 16-19 depends on traffic on blackpool front
