I had to travel some distance in heavy traffic yesterday, about 50 miles, so put the box on auto and went with the 60 mph flow which returned 32 mpg.

I have 19 mpg overall, essentially with recreational driving, and get about 14 mpg when blatting about on B roads. Pretty good given the immense power that needs feeding!

I just find it amazing that an engine with so much performance can return decent mpg abeit with slower but 'legal' progress.

Told my wife, 'oh, then I can take the Mac to work then'

I've tried to get good mileage. I really have. But my absolute best has been 25ish mpg going down to Laguna. Otherwise I get between 15 and 20 mpg average. Lowest was ~4mpg, on the track.

Remember the UK gallon is 25% bigger and 600% or so more costly.

I expected 7 mpg on track but 4 mpg must be Veyron territory!!!!
