You went into London? What the hell for?

I live in the South Midlands and I've got more sense than to go into that hell hole :)

I agree it has become a hell hole, although I have lived in Scotland for over 50 years it is where I was brought up and visit the relatives. It  has changed so much it has become like visiting a foreign country.

I love visiting London, or at least the tourist bits. It has been a few years but I doubt I would go back now.

I've just run the tank down to 1 mile remaining, to get to my favourite ASDA pumps, and the refill took 39.0 litres to the first stop.  453 miles covered, giving 53 mpg, with the trip meter showing 57. There was still one bar showing on the gauge.  The miles remaining fell quite a bit faster than the actual miles covered during the last 40 miles at 60mph.  I expect there was still another 20 t0 30 miles available.

Some screenshots from my Fuelly page:

No special attempt at maximising MPG.

Stats include occasional roof boxes, bikes on roof etc.

60.2 best was with a following wind from Gower to Derby.

I find Fuelly quite good, as you can select some custom stats.
Here are my details for my MkI GD5.

Jocko, your images aren't working for me...I would be interested to see them if you can make them work. I am seeing message "please update your account to enable third party hosting"

I meant to add in my previous post that the discrepancy between trip computer mpg and tank-to-tank mpg has increased steadily on my car. When it was new the error was 2-3 mpg. Now 12 months 14,000 miles it is 5-6 mpg

Any thoughts on that? rolling radius change as tyres wear? You would think that would feed into both types of mpg.

Any change in motoring mix, I.e long runs v short?  I have found the discrepancy to be around 8% pretty consistently.

That'll be it. I'll delete my images from Photobucket and post them elsewhere.

Four hundred dollars Photobucket?  I think I'll update my wheel bearings post to use imgur or tinypic (and not use Clubjazz bandwidth)

No, no correlation with type of journeys. I approximately alternate 97 and 95 RON fuel, but that doesn't seems to be a factor either.

I have not recorded the trip computer mpg, just eyeballed it as I enter the pump data in Fuelly, but I will start doing so.
