Just drive down from Chesterfield Moor to Calver - easy! Sadly didnt get the same result on the way back.... Sorry for shaky photo, the one showing 71.4 is worse.

I hope this was worth the additional risk to the other people unfortunately sharing the road with you.

No, the wife wasn't driving, I'd let the dog have a go for a change.

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:

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!
