I filled my car up the other day, reset the trip and drove home as economically as I could, following the lorries for just over 7 miles and averaged 94.6mpg  :laugh:

Needless to say, the next time I started to drive, that average plummeted, but now, 300 miles on and the average since filling up is 62.1mpg.  :smiley:
Red Mk6 gone replaced with a white Mk7 which has gone too. Green Mk2 here to stay.

Parked it in the middle of the drive with the intention of snow-foaming it for the first time, only to be scuppered by a sudden onslaught of very high winds.   :huh:
