The second tank was completed a few days ago.

This was 100% the Burd driving, and she was on shifts that involved driving in the middle of the morning rush hour (lots of crawling traffic)

The result?

A none too shabby 55.71mpg (imperial)

307.7 miles, 25.11L Derv consumed.

Spent yesterday running about in this with the windows down due to the heat (23 degrees Celsius is Scotland!)

Noticed that the buffering from having the windows open is really terrible - especially about the b pillar.

Not good. Wonder if it is related to the aerodynamics?

It definitely is. My work van buffets badly, makes my ears hurt even at low speeds. My Insight buffets very little until over 70mph, and my Fit does not buffet at all so far as I can tell.

What happens when you blow air across the top of an empty jug?

Open the rear windows a bit

It's where the archaic (and out of place on a 5 door) push-out rear windows on the up! shine - great for ventilation

If only the car were as entertaining to drive as your use of language.

This car is a very pragmatic approach to aerodynamics and compact packaging.

I want to admire it more than I do.

You need to adjust your torsion value. like this and you need also vag com cable. It will do miracles to your low end torgue and fuel consumption.

If you want to get better ecu program I can help you out on that too for little cost.
