310 ?????????????? Do you turn the engine off going down hill ?

I think I get about 150 to 180 on full tank.

Re: wots your average mpg

I've learnt over the past month NOT to worry about it! Whilst talking about motorways has anyone experienced the following...

When I'm driving my wife's fiesta to work and back, no matter what speed I'm doing EVERYONE will overtake me. When driving the subaru I can be doing 60 - 65mph and some drivers seem to hang back as if they are waiting for me to fly off! Maybe it's just me?

Yeah me too. What is comedy is that their cars are twice as loud and a quarter of the power.
Keeps me smiling though!
