    Evening All, I've noticed that i'm now down to 26.1mpg for my town driving in my 06 1.8 vec and not amused as was getting that out of my 325 and got rid of that for better mpg. Is the drop down to the snow etc.

    I've not had 37mpg out of mine since i swapped the mpg units over on the BC. I thought it was the car at first. Been sat on the trader then saying its got to go as can't be bothered with this mpg for not much speed but stopped that now and love it again haha
