Okay, just got back from London, haven't checked properly yet but I averaged 42.5mpg, have covered a total distance of around 280 miles and have about 60 odd miles remaining.

So according to my original displayed 280 miles remaining from a full tank, I've gotten 60 miles for free! :lol: That's even with driving quite aggressively, lots of stop start traffic in London. (leaving at rush hour is never a good idea) and reaching 80mph on the odd occasion on the motorway.

got my tyres filled with nitrogen the other day apparently lasts longer in the tyre keeping presure correct for longer also gives a harder ride and there seems to be less roll when cornering so we shall see how it does.http://www.uniflate.com/

You know that air is nearly 80% nitrogen anyway right? I hope you didn't pay to have 'nitrogen' pumped into your tyres. I will be amazed if you notice any difference.

I did overinflate my tires but found it a harder, noiser ride and MPG did increase but have decided to go down to the norm.

I was wondering if any of you guy's can tell me if increasing the back tyre pressure to 27 will make any difference? How does the car handle with the tyres o the maximum load pressure?
