As others have reported, the recent low ambient temperatures have had a marked effect on my mpg. Current tankful has only done 180 miles so far and mpg is showing as 50.5 (Trip A). However, Trip B still shows 61.2 over 6,000 miles since new in September 2021. I keep a spreadsheet of mileage/litres and this currently calculates an average since new of 59.43 mpg. I'm happy with that, seeing as most of my journeys are short shopping trips with stop/starts in between, and the occasional trip around 30 miles.

Just filled up today. Didn't really need to but had a nectar points offer for Esso Supreme. MPG now down to 49.5 on this last tank (real as opposed to computer).

This was the 5th refuelling this year. In fact I could quite easily have made that 4 without ever getting to the squeaky bum stage. I'm on less than 2000 miles a year now. At my age I won't need another car.

Latest fill added to history.

Cold weather motorway run included.

Overal mpg remaining reasonably stable.

Since filling up at the end of December, my Trip B average has struggled to keep above 40mpg. Unfortunately I am mainly doing very short journeys (shopping), so I don't expect it to improve any time soon.

I tend to bump along at about 45 (ish) during the winter. I do mainly shopping trips but my mpg seems a bit better than yours - this is almost certainly because I often go the long way round to the shops just to keep the battery charged up!

Latest fill figures added.
Overall mpg roughly stable.

cold weather effect reversed now - in time for next cold snap.
