    This was on a warm day after 180km of hilly autobahn, photo taken in the garage upon arrival. Engine is 1.,0L.
    Down long steep hills I just let it roll out of gear, and yes, the tyres are inflated to the max allowed pressure being 3.0 bar.

    I used to have a 7000lbs dodge diesel that would show 99mpg. If I coasted down a hill...
    I may be wrong but I think the readings from the trip B (if they weren't recently reset) are much more realistic and accurate.
    Like Metrompg mentioned in post #173 don't get too excited about the trip A numbers.
    The pics I've been posting are from trip B in random delivery cars with the drivers paying no attention to their fuel mileage. The trip A will almost always show a much better reading from what I've noticed.

    Still, 3.6l/100k is impressive though!

    I noticed in the last couple years that when you post pictures online whatever you use to post them automatically orient's the pictures landscape now instead of portrait. You took this picture in portrait mode which is no longer a standard because all of our displays are wide screen.

    Correct, I have to rotate the picture 90 degrees, save it, rotate it back 90 degrees and re-save it. Then I can post it. It's orientated correctly then.

    I have had success by simply resizing the image on my phone. The pictures are usually too big anyway, so resizing makes for quicker, more reliable uploads.

    This is my "b" average. It was reset in spring.
    In mid winter its more like 4.9L or so, but in the summer it is as in the photo.
    I wonder if other long-distance drivers notice a 15% to 20% or so consumption increase in winter?

    The car is a stripped-totally-naked 1.0L model, priced at €8000, (around US $8400) which explains the bare instrument panel. Tyres are stock Bridgestone Ecopia in summer, SAVA winter tyres in winter. Without really knowing what sort of extras the more luxurious models have, you don't really miss much, except for softer seats and less-crappy steering...
