Driving for economy whilst still keeping up with the flow can bring me over 100mpg. Best trip mpg to date, 56mph with the trucks in Lane 1, brought 103.8mpg Oxford to Gravesend. Roadholding excellent, especially if you want to play. Have seen (overseas) a 96mph/104 mile dash return 67.7mpg. On the motorway it can easily keep up with the flow but does need rpm and plenty of gearchanges to get the best from it. Wind noise seems the same at 40mph as it is at 114mph. Best fun of all is on the motorway, where limited 'open' distances coupled with some anticipation and plenty of revs can ruin the day of even the biggest poseur who can't seem to outrun its 3 cylinders and 900-odd cc. Buy it to avoid being one of the sheep in the flock, to help reduce emissions, to avoid the Congestion charge, to fleece Blair and Brown on VED and with the taxman, and most of all, buy it to have fun and save a fortune in fuel costs!
