Most of us would agree that bigger is better (aside from the ones who've misunderstood what driving a golf means ) but what sort of MPG are you getting?

Solid 47-48 on my 1.2 petrol punto, down from 50 odd now I'm not just doing constant cruising at 60 along A-Roads and doing more urban driving.

In my 1.6L Petrol Peugeot 207, I manage about 45 MPG. This is over the last 3,500 miles, which has mostly been on the M40/M25/M11. Not the most economical car, and I'm definitely looking to upgrade when the car gives in. Though I hope that's not for another 50,000 miles

I checked my little Hyundai i10 and it says my average is 58.7 mpg.

I think my car is capable of doing better than that, but as a new driver I am not!

I average 45 to the gallon in my fourteen year old Passat, although that's almost all my 20 mile round trip to work on A-roads. I'm not too light on the throttle either. She'll do 55+mpg on a motorway trip with the cruise control set to 70mph though, and that goes up if I bring it down to 60mph. Not bad for a dirty old estate.

32.9MPG on a 10 year old Mazda 3 1.6, manufacturer spec when new stated 36 as the combined, so not too bad. I also spend a hell of a lot of time in stop start traffic, which compounds things.

Interesting. *What do you reckon you could average if you didn't drive like a maniac? **

haha nah i was exaggerating with the manic bit but I do like to rev high. I think my MPG has been harmed because most mornings I drove down the A1 to work which had roadworks for about two years while I was here (Newcastle). It meant my mpg getting to and from work most days was awful due to the miles of stop start traffic.

Now the A1 is finished and I do more of a smooth 50mph for that distance I get more like mid 45mpg while heading to work. I guess that means my "true" mpg is probably more like low to mid 40s than high 30s which is not bad.

I think if I drove slower and revved lower i'd probably expect high 40s but who knows

40-50.
But I do do a lot of short journeys so that explains why it isn't higher.

I usually get 27mpg or so. I drove 200 miles on the motorway and did 35mpg which I was pretty blown away by.
