They'll need a light paw on the pedal. And take care not to upset "the other people unfortunately sharing the road with you".... :roll:
Thanks for the advice.....it wasn't me who made that comment. I hope you're more observant when you're driving. :lol:
No Leon I know it wasn't you - you have a sense of humour...

I think I may have bettered that figure today. I managed to do 15 miles at 80mph using virtually no fuel!

There is a downhill stretch of motorway here that runs down from 3000ft to sea level. With the car in Eco drive mode the engine disengages drive and coasts at 800 rpm in neutral. The joys of a DSG box!
Ah, but did you get your dog to take a picture?!

Jesus Anteca, some whiny people on here. How bored must you be that you can't take some information at face value without jumping to conclusions/down other people's throats!

Hilarious that Sidelight hasn't come back with the apology you deserve.. Oh well miserable people and all that!

Nice figures I've heard mixed figures in terms of fuel economy so nice to see that on a decent stretch the 1.4 can hit some good figures! Thanks for sharing

Sadly, no. He was too busy Googling dog food offers on his mobile :D

Oh well, its all good fun isnt it? Just have to recognise some folk lack emotional intelligence / a personality. As to mpg, I'm reasonably happy that I'm averaging around 42 which compares favourably, I think, with my diesel Leon 1.9 which averaged 47 mpg, and my diesel Ford C-Max 2.0 which gave me 39 mpg, so not bad for petrol really, though nowhere near the official figures. That said, I've never believed them anyway, usually assuming about 10mpg less overall than the published combined figure - usually its in the right ball-park. I wonder what mpg the dog would achieve long-term?

Hey! That's just darn cheating. :o

Let my dog drive today but, they stalled it 3 times and that was enough. :)
