Well Happy New front Discs and pads and improved MPG

Am i dreaming, changed my front discs and pads and while driving home i noticed the car was looser so i checked trip meter B and whao! 43mpg on the motorway. i thought i must be dreaming, the best ive ever got out of my 1.9 JTD 159 Ti SW is 37mpg. decide to keep an eye on the mpg on my daily commute and i'm geting between 40-41.6mpg on a mixture of A and B roads. i hope it stays this way as i'm chuffed to bits

Did you clean up the sliders or pistons at the same time? Maybe they were binding a bit?
