How do you manage that!?

I could only ever get 30-35ish around town driving like an angel, and up to 40 doing a constant 70 on the motorway...

Mind you, i'm not having problems with expensive fuel right now...

Wifeys Stilo 1.2 Active returned Ave 62.9 on a trip up to Manchester airport and back a couple of weeks ago, the 2 of us and a weeks holiday luggage on board, round trip of 138 miles, on a Motorway though, at a steady 60 mph. Her normal return is 44 mpg on the Urban trips, lots of short trips and she hasnt re-set the Trip B meter since she bought it.

No complaints with this car except for the Airbag blooper now and again.

Sounds about the same as me pre-remap! I tell ya its all down to the remap, makes the car run alot smoother and the extra power (y)

Silly question whats the difference between the first Ave Consumption you scroll to when compared with Ave Consumption B?

1st is average of trip A reset (or master reset)
2nd is average of trip B (or secondary reset)

I reset trip A every time I fill up with fuel and just use trip B for individual journeys - but it's all down to personal preference :)
