Tdci Intercooler Question

I need to get myself on the motorway and see what I can get, I've got up to 50mpg now just town driving which isn't too bad, I'm not sure what the mpg should of been when the car was made.

Fifty is about right for town usage. And for the extra urban it's about 67 I think don't quote me though. and lenny that's pretty good. that's just about 65mpg. There is always room for improvement. I don't think I'll get much more than 70 maybe 71 before having to drive a lot slower and getting remap.

Actually them Aussie loons did a myth busters thing about painter the I/C black, they found it helped keep the air cooler than the chrome when in traffic/sitting around, but when it came to driving at speed it didn't make too much difference (if any).

Fun based facts for ya!
