Re: Coasting - better in neutral or in gear?

I keep doing a combination of both, I prefer coasting in neutral because of the increased distances but coasting in gear is definitely the way to go in certain circumstances. Take this morning for example, climbed up a hill at 43mph, took foot off accelerator to go down the other side for 1/2 mile w...

Re: MPG competition - What MPG can you get?!?!?

Filled up this morning - up slightly to 55.5mpg. I can't seem to improve much at the moment. I blame Sheffield traffic, lots of stop starts, traffic lights, etc.
Am aiming for 60mpg next.

Last night I got flashed by white van man for doing an indicated 43 mph in a 50 limit. Has anyone else had a similar experience (or worse)! ...

Re: MPG competition - What MPG can you get?!?!?

I have had a Honda FR-V 2.2 i-CDTi since April 2006. Honda's combined figure is 44mpg - not bad I thought from a big, wide, fairly heavy 6 seater. I got an average of 44.93mpg in my first year. I thought I'd done well just matching the figure which a lot of people seem to find difficult. I have just...
