Last year i done a round trip of around 660 miles in my 2.2, average speed of about 65 and managed about 59mpg. this was made up of 2x330 mile non stop journeys though

i guess the estate is a bit heavier than the hatch?

Stef, thats impressive, guess a lot depends on driving style and road conditions. Never thought a 2.2 would be more economical than the 2ltr, maybe its the extra tourque
