The average for the trip is around 40mpg, thats say 75%motorway and 25% country/city driving,

but immassivelyimpressed i wasregularly checking theinstantness and would see 45-50. average speed on the motorway, 75mph @ 3000rpm


The worst mpg ive had since owing the car is 5mpg yep five!!! but i was exploring the full extent rev range shall we say!!

About 27-28 mpg (that's the average since mile zero with maybe 10 miles done on motorways), but I didn't choose this sort of car to try and get good mpg and drive accordingly


Fuel gauge shows empty and lights up little petrol pump warning light pretty early (normally at about 240 miles from filling up), probably still 5-6 litres in tank at this stage.

Needed about half a litre of oil as well after a 1000 miles.

Rev limiter cuts in pretty hard at 7500 rpm, knocks revs back to 7000 then seems to gradually let them increase again over a few seconds, so you don't seem to bounce off it like you did in the T-Sport.
