Welcome to the site. That's UK gallons you refer to, yes? ... and there are some UK people on the site. And some others from various countries on the Continent. Hope they pipe up.

If you want easy conversions of your UK mpg to US and to L/100km start a fuel log, which shows the different calculations simultaneously.

What mods have you done or are you contemplating?
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
