My Best MPG Yet

Just done a slightly longer than normal trip in my Brera, this was mainly on Motorway and using cruise control set at around 75mph, the distance was around 150 miles with an average speed of 50mph. I managed to get an indicated 28.5 mpg, not bad for a 2.2 Brera unless you know better!

Re: My Best MPG Yet

Did a 120 mile round trip today, tried to drive efficiently on the way out (too much time on my hands) and normally on the way back, about 100 miles was Motorway. Managed 30.2 mpg with average 49 mph on way out and 29.1 mpg with average 56 mph on the way back (2.2 Brera).
On the way out I got numerous red lights and traffic queues and the way back I only had to stop twice. So if you want good mph you need a bit of luck with other traffic, and try using your right foot instead of cruise control.
