I don't believe that. I have to try very hard to get 55mpg and my needed 600 miles a week. If I drove like I wanted to I'd need to fill up on a Thursday night.

hope this is useful, more info to come now i'm happy with the mapping I can provide some consistant results shortly

Nice idea about the testing different brands of fuel, only problem is that in the colder weather your mpg will drop noticeably - on the frosty mornings recently my mpg has fallen by (roughly) 10%.
You will need to do your testing of each brand in consistent temperatures for it to be meaningful

I've noticed it takes me ages to get 50mpg now instead of 30mins.

Had the FR150 nearly a month and now done 1500 miles.

Commuting 25 miles a day 6 miles on A roads, rest on the M1. When I can I am doing 80 in 6th. I am getting around 45-48mpg when not stuck in traffic.

The miles seem to be getting better, I am looking at around 450 a tank at the moment, better than my 270 from the Focus. Presumably if I do 60mph I will get better milage.

From the M1 to Worksop the other night I did 50 all the way in 5th and got 48.9mpg over a 6 mile stretch.

If it's anything like my Ibiza, you'll get better mpg in 5th at speeds like that, 6th is too tall and labours the engine too much.

Yes but you haven't got the stupidly high 6th gear that the Ibiza Sports have
1000rpm=37.5mph...

Trust me, it took lots of hard work to get my record of 670-odd miles from my Mk4, I know which gears/speeds give the best mpg in that particular car

it will be fine in 6th, but agreed you get better mpg it seems at 5th, bear in mind it was a nice twisty and not a long straight.

she's just filled up for the first time in eight days

Well just used my 1st tank full, got 540 when the fuel light came on....did about another 30 and squeezed 52 litres in. So not bad, about in line with my old Toledo when it only had a few miles on it, that improved by about 50 miles a tankful. Drove it fairly steady, with a few big boots when I needed to clear stuff.....
This tank I'll push it along a bit, to see what it drops to.

You sure? 70 in mine is just over 2k. 70/2=35.

I got 670 out of my 307 HDi and I've had 640 out of the Leon. I'm sure 670 out of a lighter car with less power would be much easier.

Now then Nick, not seen you about in a while. Loving it? Not sure I could do a 630 tank up there, would be enjoying the roads too much...

6th gear in the TDI Sports (like muddyboots' one) is a longer gear than my FR's 6th gear, which does about 2100 at 70mph.

I live in clayton.

I have thought about the derv doctor, but they looked pricey for remaps plus i am thinking about a custom job, and jabba are quite reasonable for that.
