With17inch wheels on, two adults, a full tank of diesel and 2 kids in the car & the A/C on , did 120 miles yesterday, various trips but 80miles on national limit dual and single carriageway - returned home with the trip on 60 mpg !!!!!!

Even allowing for computer optimism this is the best by far I've had on a decent run.

To think after three years I was getting itchy feet and thinking of selling, it must have known & sipped away lightly yesterday to make me review my plans!

Hi Paul

I know what you mean.

I have the PD100 in a Fabia and I return on average 64.5 MPG as I do 75miles to get to work and 150 round trip I think this is excellent.

Has some good torque too.

Cannot want any more eh?

Nice one

Have you ever thought that I love my job?

It only costs ?10.00 per day.

Was thinking about doing the Tunit box on my car.

They say it ups the MPG so may give it a go too.

To me it is not about money , but also job satisfaction too.

Hi Sarah,

I have the Tunit on my 100PD Golf - it makes a hell of difference to the acceleration. I had it serviced at a VW specialist (they must see and drive lots of VW's). When I picked it up he said "why is your car so bloody quick"! I can't say I've noticed much difference with the fuel economy though either way - maybe slightly less because it's so much more fun accelerating now!

Naaaaaaaaaah, get out of it...[:D]

On the way home my father-in-law didn't keep up, but I admit to only breaking the limit once, when over-taking a crazy woman in a 106 who was weaving all over the road at ~45 mph in a National single carriageway, sped past, settled into indicated 63 mph cruise and she was all over me like a rash???????

Over-took again another slow-moving car at a questionable speed just to put it between me and her (she settled again behind that....)

The worst case of lane managemnt I've seen in years, she was over the line on the verge to her left then 2 seconds later completely straddling the centre line.

Hi Mate

Oooh I think that I will have to give one a go.

I am so impressed with these so far that I feel that I have to give one of them a try.

So we will have to see what happens [:D]

were you not slightly worried at this comment?! I would be asking why the hell they had to rag my car to find that out.

Or why they didn't see the box when they lifted the bonnet.................

Ha ha no - if they break it - they pay for it. The box is well integrated and hidden. You'd have to be looking for it specifically to see it. As it was in for the rear brakes, they may not even have been looking in that area?

My girlfirned manages around 52.4 MPG in town driving! AC always on like it should be. They are really very economical and capable engines.
