Sounds about right. Cruise control is still a high price option whereas they chuck it on for free with Vauxhall Vivas. To be fair I should support the Nissan choice because it's Jap.. Built in England. As long as it can still be taken apart with a 10-12mm socket set I'm happy.

@Danecowan

my best run = 469 miles
Fuel used = 34.5ltr (measured on refill back to full tank)

34.5/4.54 = 7.59 Gal

469/7.59 = 61.79mpg

I think my thermostat may be opening too soon and engine running cooler than it should be. This will effect mog especially in winter. I need to test this hypothesis by using the obd reader and driving around. Being the wifes car its tricky to get time to do it. Shame they dont have a temp gauge on dash.

You could fit one or get one fitted or even just change the thermostat for a new one to be sure.

Need some help with my maths l think.
Over the past few months been logging my fuel consumption, keep in mind they are in litre and kilometres. Did the conversion, can someone check this out for me.
87litres for 2027 kilometres. I get this 19 gallons 1260 miles.
Giving me 66 miles to the gallon. Don’t believe this all my journeys are short, in traffic and the engine is over 90,000

I don't record every tank but have done so now and again over the last 8 years of ownership of our 2007 107 1.0.

I once (not long after we got the car) got just over 60mpg on my commute to work (average across a full tank) but typically the average mpg is more like 48-53mpg.

Best achieved (on a full tank average) was 68.6mpg - this was a long drive from Durham to Staffs and back mainly at 60mph on the A1, with some 70mph) Was impressed with that.

Last recorded tank was the lowest so far, all the fours, 44.44mpg - but weve had lots of cold weather + snow and it is always a few mpg less in winter anyway.

As per my thread I have got 60.25 mpg over 40,000 miles, taking the car from 14k to 54k on the milo. This is exact btw all litres recorded and divided by 4.54611.

Try to avoid dual carriageways and motorways because the sweet spot is 30 to 45 in fifth gear. 30 is doable in fifth so long as you are ' sympathetic' with the gas pedal as another member put it. Don't tailgate or overly use brakes.

Example this morning took the mainly 30 mph speed limit from Matlock to Nottingham through the towns of Codnor, Heanor and Ilkeston, about ten miles quicker than a motorway or dual carriageway route, coasting at 30 in fifth hardly touching the gas pedal and anticipating lights and cars turning ahead to just keep moving. Same journey time because in the sat nav age everybody goes on the dual carriageways and get into tailbacks but saving pounds in fuel.

Tbf I know most people love speed, but for me the joy of driving is doing the minor roads. If I go to Wales or Lincolnshire we will save 30 miles doing the country lanes and Market towns that is part of our holiday..where as 95% will do the motorway which I find boring.
