Finally tipped over the 60mpg mark on Fuelly :-) . A few nice longish, mostly rural, trips offset the usual 15/20 min trips to and from work which don't seem to be great for economy (dual carriageway before warmed up on the way in and power sucking hill early on the way home).
Top one.
8-)

I find the warm-hot weather's really helping at the minute. Practically all my fill-ups since May, have been mid-60s+; high so far of 67.25mpg. I'm expecting that when the temperature drops below about 14C again, the mpg will be coming back down.

I was thinking the other day, that what the car needs is a button (maybe on the back of the steering wheel) to force it into 'coast' mode, eliminating the need to try and get the throttle position just so.
Cheers.
Ian.
