    I get 21MPG with my 2.8, and that's mainly town driving.
    I think he doesn't know that the accelerator isn't an on/off switch, that you can actually only press it slightly

    I get 30mpg out of my 1.8 Carisma sitting at 100

    Think mine does about 30-35 depending how I drive I'm trying to get it as close to 20 though as possible. 3000 miles isn't that far james! (I'll probably be eating my words when I've just got to dover from the midlands and we're only just beginning!)

    3000 miles @ 10MPG is about 950 for fuel

    I work out at 79p a litre (though I gather petrol is cheaper in europe) at 30MPG it only costing 350 quid and most of us should get that or better on the motorways etc

    If this is your kind of motorway, go for it.

    No you know what I mean silly but I would happily exchange the motorways for those roads
