The Jazz really likes town driving, the gearing makes for great mpg tootling about.

Ours is averaging 50.7mpg on the fibometer after servicing, a mixture of driving, I'm happy with that.

I find town driving allows the greatest scope for improving your mpg. With anticipation, turning the engine off at long lights, avoiding using my brakes, and trying to avoid the wheels actually stopping (keeping the car rolling can make quite a difference), I can make huge improvements. On the open road my mpg is no better than the next Jazz driver (unless he/she accelerates up behind traffic then brakes heavily).

Wow Jocko. Incredible MPG figures.

The number below my avatar is my overall average, summer and winter, for the entire time I have owned the car. This is recorded on Spritmonitor.de and includes fill ups from before I started driving with economy in mind.

Well, you can't really moan about 57mpg.

After a few slightly longer runs, ours is hovering around 52.5mpg on the fibometer, the service and Pento HP oil certainly seems to have made a positive difference.

Filled my tank up this morning and my calculated mpg was 63.6 mpg, my second best ever. Both my ScanGauge (at 60.5 for the tank) and the on-board display (at 61.4 for the tank) were pessimistic. For the first time I used the Fuelly/peteo48 formula ( https://clubjazz.org/forum/index.php?topic=7808.msg61314#msg61314 Reply 170), and it gave me 33% urban miles and 67% interurban. Surprising, considering I always considered I did more urban driving, but probably fairly correct going on miles driven.
My ScanGauge data for the previous tank was:
Average mpg: 60.5 mpg
Max coolant temp: 84C
Distance travelled: 488 miles
Maximum revs: 3544 rpm
Max speed: 68 mph
Average speed: 30 mph
