Mito mpg (how does that work out)

Hi all, just had 1st real chance to evaluate the mpg on the Mito 1.6jtdm on a decent run and I'm a little puzzled at the results. Started journey in Normal drive mode with 4 adults aboard, start point 3 mls from motorway, finish point 3 mls from motorway and 100 mls away, ave top speed 90mph and return was an average of 51.2mpg. Return journey 4 adults in Dynamic mode, an ave top speed of 95mph and a return of 54.4 mpg ???? Dropped a clanger though I told the missus what I was doing so now she'll be going to Asda in D mode no doubt ! Must say the return leg was a damn site more enjoyable but surely they must have wired in the DNA system wrong or is it that the turbo is doing it's job more efficiently ???? Any thoughts ? Ciao

I reckon the extra torque in Dynamic mode will mean you use less throttle when swapping between cruising and overtaking at motorway speeds Thus mpg should be a bit better. Tis simples like
