    Eek Average MPGs ?

    With fuel prices increasing all the time I have recently being paying more attention to my average MPG figures.

    Yesterday I was in Cardiff and re-set the computer before driving back to Birmingham. I drove a short way on the M4 before cutting across the to the M50 via Monmouth (lovely drive) and then along the M5.

    The car is an 06 Vectra 1.9 SRi CDTI 150. I stuck to the various speed limits all the way, I did not have passengers in the car and my boot was empty. I used cruise control for most of the journey but I did leave the air-con on.

    At the end of my journey i (or should I say the car) managed 62.2mpg.

    Commuting between Birmingham and Malvern I regulary achieve mid 50s mpg without too much effort.

    I was wondering what are other peoples personal bests have been!!.....and I do mean MPG!

    I found the CDTi auto to be very good on the long stretch, not so good about the town though.

    3.2 V6 Elite. I've been a little more careful with the loud pedal of late due to the fuel prices and have achieved an average 32mpg combined. When fuel was under a pound a litre, I was averaging 28 mpg.

    It's stop start queuing traffic that is the killer. Get stuck in a motorway accident queue and its kiss goodbye to the economy
