M.p.g ?????????????

It would appear i'm only getting 10.5 MPG around MK, I do a fair bit of short runs but don't drive like a loon all the time and the only mods I have are a pipercross panel filter and a maxnex backbox and center pipe so whats going on here ????, it does feel a bit lumpy at times on easy acceleration, don't notice it so much if you do put ya foot down

They don't have a dyno then it says "Mapping is usually done on the road, with you driving the car. This enables the map to be fully suited to all conditions and your car spec, as well as fully responsive to your driving style. Oh and customers get a kick out of it too!"

Well Dave I`ve had two now and both have done similar sort of MPG. But then I don`t care, you don`t buy these sort of cars to worry about fuel consumption If you want something that uses less fuel, buy an everyday runaround like your Micra
