Driving in traffic with an engine that isn't reaching proper working temp will have an effect but I'm not sure how much.

Our 2.0 gets used around towns mainly but still manages 27-29. I normall expect around 300 miles from a tank ... at the moment it's on a quarter with 340 on the clock. Because of the knackered CV joints, she's being treated far more gently than normal ...
