It's about the same on mine. I always moan when I get stuck behind lorries doing 50mph for a long time but it's the only time I get fuel economy in the magic 30's!

On a 50 mile journey (mostly m'way) seen just over 40mpg from my golf 1.8T with a jabba custom map.  Was doing mostly round about 80mph but sticking quite close behine all the other traffic. (Slipstreaming) Was a bit naughty  but you would be supprised the amount of difference it makes!
