Re: 18 MPG??? Is that right?
And I thought my mpg was bad!
I average about 23mpg but that was also when I was doing about 3 miles to work and back. Long trips I hit over 30mpg average, but I know that is still lower than others on here.
Though it sure is lovely when the actual mpg shows something like 50 mpg(or higher even!) when you're lowering speed revs in 5th or down hill.......but why should I enjoy that....I should've bought a diesel if I wanted economy!
However, regarding my low average mpg, the lambda sensor has crossed my mind. At my last service, the main dealer said that it wasn't perfect(i.e. 'failing' at times but within range, for which I have the print out), but I guess they could've charged or insisted on a replacement to make money if they wanted?! The air flow meter has been changed recently too.
