Majority of my driving is rush hour stop/start during the week and this is killing my MPG - I average 43-45.

Yesterday I did a 200 mile motorway round trip and wasn't gentle but got over 50 MPG sonmuch much better.

As an aside mine doesn't have the gear change indicator either  :cry:

Right got fed up today as it was taking too long to use all the fuel, filled up 33 litres with 429.7 miles on the clock. 59 odd miles per gallon. Pretty good all in.

Patience I have but not extreme patience.

One of my challenges is that my journey to and from work involves some big big hills :shocked:

Off down to Sheffield tomorrow so will see if I can improve it without taking away the fun!

That's the one Keith.
