best of luck with the 40mpg goal, that is also what i'm striving for.
You would run circles around me in town though. My father has gotten as low as 13mpg in town during the winter if that is any indication.

The trouble is, even though in closed loop after a short while my fuel consumption always is almost double after a moderately cold start for up to 15 minutes. In the summer it seems to take a minimum of 5 minutes, usually longer before the idle fuel consumption drops and the car runs more efficiently.

The car really is intended as a road car and not a town going vehicle.
