Funny you should ask, I just checked the car after brimming it yesterday and on getting home I reset the trip. So this is two x 1.75 mile trips undertaken by the wife to work and back to day nine hours apart. We live in the centre of town her place of work is just outside the town................result 21.4 mpg ....same engine as yours.
So that is literally a town driving result you asked for.
But that said, if you really mean an overall average, well over the last 2,635 miles I'm averaging 34.39 mpg. Of that total mileage 1,071 miles of it was three trips involving touring on A roads and motorways, they returned collectively 39.65 mpg.
The other 1,564 miles was what I class as urban driving including trips to neighbouring towns and villages, and obviously in town driving. That returns 31.52 mpg. All data recorded using the brim testing method.
Last years average ending October was 32.52 mpg
Year before that the average was 32.84 mpg.
With the increased cost of petrol over the last 32 months having increased by on average 24.3%

Though I have always considered myself to be an economical driver. I've taken to being even lighter on the throttle and even lighter on the brake pedal, hence my improved mpg this current year.
Does it show, I love doodling with data and spreadsheets.........
