A lot is down to driving style and the type of driving your doing. If the car is well serviced and mechanically ok then it should be doing near 40mpg.

In a word, crap! Driving carefully, with correct tyre pressures and regular servicing, I get 23-24 round the town and it takes ages to get up to 40mpg on a run. This engine is also worse on fuel when temperatures drop. In last years severe cold snap mine was struggling to do 20 mpg. My ancient Primera GT was better on fuel!!Car is great drive, spacious, well bolted together but could be taking a hike for something less expensive to run and tax.

Yes, i have to agree with many of you: 24-25 mpg around town. i do a lot of that.
30-34 mixed driving. it takes light years to achieve 40mpg. i achieved 41mpg on my way down to Marseille
