    Thumbs up My Trip - Fuel Economy

    So Tuesday afternoon i headed to scotland from Farnborough, topped up the car with unleaded , I have a 2.2 Direct SRI 06 plate

    Had the car 1 month so this would have been the first long drive up there with it, my previous car did the trip using 3/4 tank (2.0 DTI)

    415 Miles in total, motorway driving all the way, hit a few average speed cams areas, cruised most of the way at 80 mph, didnt go over it at all

    So sat nav set, fuel computer watched, comparing the 2 the closer i got to scotland, stopped twice i think for a coffee and a nature call, took me 6.15 hrs in total

    So arrived at 18:17 with (according to the comp) 70 miles still in the tank

    To my reconing i would say that was effing great !!!

    What do you think ??

    I got about 450 to a tank once and that was 4 up with luggage. Who needs a dirty fueled car.

    On a long run they are economical for a big petrol engine. Unfortunatley we haven't been doing many long runs lately and ours is av 27.9 around town!!

    My average is coming down as I haven't done any long trips for a while. I don't want to look.
