    THERE'S NO NEED TO SHOUT!

    You can use up to a third more in fuel by travelling at 80-90 mph rather than at 70 mph.

    Driving at 80-90 mph constantly isn't going to get you anywhere near your average mpg figure! Even at 70 mph you will still use more fuel than at 60 mph.

    Even in my V6 diesel I know that by looking at the instant consumption figures on the computer that travelling along at 70 mph is MUCH,MUCH,MUCH more economical than doing 80 or 90 mph.

    It's also more legal too!
