Thank, I inflated the tyres to 42psi. 8psi more than recommended. I have been told that if you go too high your tyres don't last as long, so worried it might be a faulse economy. What's your experance of this?

I will defiantly go for a slightly higher tyre wall when it comes to renewing the tyres. As it's had some slightly smaller wheels on, the speedo is actually reading slightly slower than it should, and of course the miles covered will be slightly less than it should. So increasing the tyre hight will rectify that problem as well as helping the mileage. The narrower tyres (205 wide instead of 225) have defiantly helped with efficiency though.
