    New personal best tonight

    Check it; this is standard cruising, no mileage tricks like coasting. Just steady driving about 55km/h in 5th.

    Sorry for the blur but it's 25.9km/l or 72.8 Imp MPG
    I do believe this puts me into the top 95th percentile of MPG among users here

    This is on 175/75-14 SNOW TIRES inflated to 48PSI.
    The ambient temp was about 14c
    As you see I also have a scangauge which provided the same reading


    Zero, 2014 ES Plus 5MT, written off but not forgotten.
    Zero II, 2014 SE, 5MT, climate She's HOME now!

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
    We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

    km/l? Imp? That sounds ... I don't know, I guess it's good, right?

    I think, if my math is anywhere close to being right, it works out to 60.66 miles per US gallon

    I wish that to be the case for me but it is extremely difficult to achieve in one tank. I ended up accepting high 40ís as my average.

    High 40's is amazing. If it hadn't been for my playing (high speed testing, towing, E15, etc), I would be at about 43 mpg average. However I like experimenting and my commute is not conducive to high mpg. It's short and somewhat erratic.

    It's neat to see such amazing figures, especially when you are not trying. I take late night jaunts, usually around midnight to see what's alive in my city. The spring and fall are fairly quiet, as you'd guess, the summer is busy but all dies down after midnight, weekends included. The winter is odd, sometimes storms bring crowds. Anyhow, I like to drive the perimeter of my little town, I get to pass the Falls, several popular attractions, some amazing neighborhoods, see the majestic hotels, in the winter we have one of the largest light displays in the world.

    There's generally zero traffic and I can go as slow as I want.
