Indeed....if you had a lens like this!

What were you expecting; more or less that 33mph? I'd probably expected more but it depends on your style of driving & type of roads. Yours is an auto too. Might it take a while to 'settle' and return better mpg?
Just amazed that you can get such decent pace without the fuel consumption. Always been truly against the black stuff... but it's all becoming clear now!
