Re: MPG heroes - your best economy run?

Shamefully i do keep an eye on my mpg

02 Skoda Octavia 1.9 TDi - i got 88.8mpg over 79 miles on the West coast of Ireland, admittedly it was at between 40 and 50mph, but it was just the speed the traffic i was in was doing. And yes i have photographic evidence.

Back end of last year i was subbing in Beaconsfield, on the drive home to Nottinghamshire on a Friday, during rush hour i'd see just shy of 70mpg, average speed was 65ish. The Octavia is currently on about 135,000 miles.
At the time i was getting about 700 miles for about 65.
