Hi ,
The last half-tank reached a pessimistic 49mpg(us)!
But could easily drive another 10 miles or so!!
The onboard computer is +10% more optimistic, it showed 54mpg.[LIST]
Average speed was 19mph
Half of the commutes were with lights on
15% of the commute in a car repellent UK city
So far so good

Hello,
I found a new route to work which is a mile shorter and allows me to drive slower.
The last tank resulted to 54mpg.

The mods I have done are a lower full grille block and a few psi more on the tyres.
I don't think I can increase my mpg unless I eoc in every single glide,which I don't.
I eoc only when I glide for more than 0.5 mile or more.
Thanks!

Hi
I started a fuel log for over a year now as a way to monitor my progress to the 50mpg goal.
Despite having a pretty standard commute every day it is difficult to spot a trend between winter and summer mpg or the start of using E10 fuel.
I have done mild eco mods which definitely worked but 99% of the mpg gains are achieved because of the lower target speed and by learning how to drive smart( thanks to this community)
The goal of 50lifetime mpg is difficult to achieve but yet again I am averaging 20 to 30% over official figures.
Next step is to try underbody aero mods.

That's where you'll find the low-hanging fruit.
