    We have just used the first tank of Super Unleaded and it averaged just over 32 mpg. This involved mainly A Road and Motorway use.
    I filled it on Friday night and did a 20 mile round trip and it was returning just over 27, that did include some spirted and enjoyable motoring.

        6000 miles... mostly motorway (and within the speed limits of course!) - "computer says 33.6" (rather than "computer says no"!). Using primarily Optimax added around 2mpg after the first 2000...but I can't be arsed to work out whether I'm breaking even when paying the extra 12 - 13p per gallon

                    Only done 800 miles but very steady motorway (70mph) is upto 35mpg. Motorway about 80-90 mph is about 30mpg and town is about 25mpg.
