No worries, i was in a bad mood when i wrote thatGrenman wrote:Sorry, bud,MULLEY wrote:Andy, so you're basically calling me a liar, nice, i've gotten 810 miles out of a tank, so you work it out. Just because you can't manage to better that, then don't start saying its impossible. Even my 40 mile commute to work i can get 50-53mpg, so on a run i do surprisingly get more. I would imagine that if i drove even slower i'd get even more mpg. Try driving differently if you can be arsed
didnt mean to upset you nor call you a liar. Just having a rant as i cannot with my driving style do as well as yourself. Ime not a boy racer but i like the drive diesels hard as i think they are better for it.
I don't particularly try all that hard to get the fuel economy that i've been quoting & there is no way that i can't give the car a good blast of revs now & again, its usually some twonk up my arse so they get smoked literally What i find particularly good is putting in some of my old engine oil in the tank, nice smoke is produced when i press the loud pedal, it soon shifts anyone too close behind me
I just make decent progress without having to hammer the car. Like for instance at lights, i don't dither, i'm away & in 2nd gear by the time most idiots realise that they are green, so i don't hold anyone up, infact my progress is usually held up at some point by someone doing 40 in a 50
