Ahhh mpg. We used to be able to average high 50's and over 60 on a long run on our 2007 1.0 Urban 5dr. My highest (true, worked out) mpg is 68.8 after a longish steady drive.

Some on here get into the 70's and even 80's with them, they can be very economical indeed.

Sadly, our mpg has gradually worsened as the car has got older, despite correct servicing and a mainly gentle driving style. Last time i worked it out it was about 43mpg...and i think it's lowered again.

Still, it's given great service in 10 years and over 60,000 miles!

I don't often check my fuel consumption, but had to do a long run down to Cambridgeshire yesterday so calculated it. Mixture of normal driving on the M62 and A1 at 60-70 mph one up, plus the obligatory wide loads and some slow sections, resulted in just over 57 mpg from an engine that has done over 148k miles - pleasantly surprised! :-)

I wish I could achieve the lift heights if 50MPG these days.

I’m lucky to be hitting 40 at the moment, have a few lambda and cat issues. I should probably fix them

Hmm, that's interesting. Think I'll calculate a combined cycle mpg on my next fill - curious now. The previous run was mostly 5th gear cruising, but very normal driving conditions - wasn't drafting or trying to be super economical. Anything is better than my two litre petrol Mondeo (35mpg) :-)

Before I retired I owned an Audi RS4 (4.2 litre petrol V8) which averaged 22mpg but dropped as low as 16mpg in town in Winter.

Our previous Audi was the 2.7 petrol bi-turbo which got around the same - 22.3mpg :shock:

About the same as the 1.8 turbo S3 I owned in 2000 - after I had it tuned 8-)

Similar here, my Mondeo V6 was low 20s around town, so around town our 107 was my car of choice.

Same here, it's why I bought my C1 originally - 45 mpg on a daily commute is much better than low-20's :D

Then I found the C1 made me smile when driving it, it's real 'old school, with much less 'interference' from too much electronics (mine only has ABS not ESP) and because it's low powered you re-learn the importance of maintaining momentum to good progress.
