Beachbum said:Overall, I am getting 48mpg
Around town, its 48mpg, which is about 90% of my driving
Motorways/Dual carriageways its still 48mpg. This is at a pretty much constant 70mph, using the cruise control.
What did surprise me is that the Motorway driving produced the same mpg as around town, I was expecting an increase up to 50+mpg. I have to assume that this is because the engine is getting pushed harder and I am assuming the 2.0ltr engine does better at this. No reason for me to believe this, just an uneducated guess

I'd be interested to know if they really affect fuel consumption as much as the Government figures suggest.

That is just the kind of info I was after.
Your comment about the car being 'quite meaty' is interesting as my wife was worried that it won't have enough power or feel as quick as her current 1.9 Seat Ibiza Tdi did when it was a bit younger.
