Had mine around 40.2 but not managed that high. How do you do it? Especially with your driving :insanity:

Edit: Just filled up when you took that Scott? :hsugh:

Haha. No I was just about to pull into the car park in Corby. I reset it when I left my house 62 miles previous. If I did the 'just filled it up' I'd have done it at 80MPG. I can drive very economically when needs must. Or when work are paying and I want a 70% profit on fuel expenses.

Enjoying the superior 182?

I can get mine to say 250mpg if I take a picture at the right time :lol:

Eitherway, if it makes you happy.

If I hit the computer reset and coast for a mile it would show 70+ MPG. Not a true representation of the fuel though.

My car has a live mpg display working on an average, if I come off a motorway and decelerate while in gear the display gets to some silly numbers as I am moving well and using no petrol.

At that moment it is true, just the fact its a short moment down a motorway exit, sure it got it to say 800mpg at one point.
