Decided to give up on my quest for great mpg. The new tyres make it difficult and the last few days I have been running the engine to keep warm while waiting on my wife finishing her work. A no no in the search for good numbers.

Think your mpg is still exemplary even with the new tyres and winter weather. Given the small mileage I do, I'm not quite sure why I still obsess about mpg. As I have said many times before I am just a sucker for pie charts and graphs!

Jocko. Careful now. I am reminded of the time an ex army officer visited our school to talk about his experiences in WW2 and his time in a POW camp in mid Europe. It was a bitterly cold winter and rations and provisions were scarce despite the Geneva Convention to the extent that it was considered a privilege to clean out the German Officer's toilets for any undigested scraps such as sweet corn etc. The most striking story was the fire in the middle of the camp. The fatal mistake was to give in to the cold. If you could wrap up and stay on the outer perimeter you would have a good chance of getting through the freezing conditions. The moment you gave in and started inching closer to the fire was the beginning of the end. For those could not resist, the laws of diminishing returns kicked in and the closer they got, the lower the resistance and the more warmth they craved until they were virtually in the fire and that was usually the end. Never forgotten that account. However, in your case, I think staying warm is quite the smartest thing to do, all things considered... :)

The warm car is warmer than the house. Yesterday we had two electric fires in the living room and one in each bedroom. Thankfully today is a lot milder.

Topped up today though and still managed to top 50 mpg, calculated.

I topped up a couple of days back. calculated UK MPG was 41. - my lowest Yet - dropped my average to 45.4 MPG.
The saving grace is that this tank has lasted me 3 Months - Thanks to Lockdowns.

At this rate of fuel consumption - Vehicle Tax will cost me the same as fuel!

Expanding on that thought - If I consider the other car related costs - Oil/Filters/MOT/TAX and Insurance - The cost of fuel is less than a third of my overall TCO!

I'll still monitor my MPG (And obsess over it - I think it makes me a more eco conscious and safer driver)

 @Jocko - don't give up on your quest for great figures! you've been an inspiration to many!!

Cheers!

Thanks. I will still keep trying to squeeze as much out of a tankful as I can manage.

Think I'm on target for my lowest ever mpg. I've done 135 miles since November 30th - an average of less than 3 miles per day. Average speed 12 mph. A fair bit of idling as I wait for windscreens to clear. The fibometer is showing 34.6 which I reckon will be about 31 mpg.

On the plus side I may not need to refuel until March!

With my running my wife back and forward to work five days a week, and sitting with the engine running to warm the car up, while I wait for her coming out, my ScanGauge shows around 45 mpg for a day's driving. Luckily I get a two, sometimes three 80-mile trips every seven days.

MPG is not too bad. Today, from yellow light on and 388 miles, it worked out to be 51.3 ("Fibometer" - 52.5).
This time last year, the calculated figure was 52.7 mpg. Now that the new all-weather tyres are getting the edges scrubbed off the fuel efficiency is improving. And let's not forget, that is still with sitting with the engine running for the few minutes I have to wait on my wife finishing work on the frosty days.

Welcome. Yes, keeping the speed below 60 makes a big difference. I seldom go any faster. I read somewhere that the i-DSi Jazz returns it's best mpg at 53 mph(?) so I try to keep around that speed. Max torque is just above 2,500 rpm so the is a good place to stay.

One thing I have noticed Jocko is that your fibometer readings are much closer to the actual mpg than mine and many others. Is this because of a smooth driving style do you think?

It may be. I only reset it every top-up, so we are talking around 400 miles between resets.
