Mine has dropped since the back box and diff mods specifically.

Its nothing to do with the car though

My motorway cruise on a map is about 32mpg.

At 70mph it might be 34 but rarely more.

Flat out around Castle Coombe on an aggresive map yields 11mpg.

last couple of tanks since last "journey" reset, 27.4 mpg @ 32 mph average speed. I was getting better mpg when I first got the car but have started using flappy paddles to downshift at junctions so in best gear for pulling away.

Mine's a mix of M-way and (mostly) town driving, although not stop-start.

Average 22 - 24 mpg, calculated properly (i.e. brim to brim with making anote of the mileage, not relying on the car's computer).

Saw 37mpg over 150 mile country drive on way back from buying it. Getting about 30mpg on average with mixed driving.

Last calculated MPG was about 1.5mpg better than the OBC was saying.
