    Yep, was on a trip from the Isle of Wight to Sunninghill near Ascot, the reset from start was showing 51 mpg when I was doing 70ish mph on the M3, which was the average from start, so I reset it as though I had just started the journey while doing 70ish mph and the screen settled down at 67.1mpg for a while, mind you by the time I arrived in Sunninghill it was back down to 54. On the homeward journey I left it to its normal from restart setting it was 49.7 mpg which was probably about right for the average. Not bad as its only done 1450 miles from new and still need more miles to loosen it up. ioweddie.

    Lol... Yes and if you reset it at the top of a really really long hill you could probably see 99.9 mpg - don't mean you're actually getting it tho does it!!!!!

    Well Ive had a true 67 mpg on a long and steady A road run.. There was little congestion and so i managed to run the car at optimal speeds..
    This was NOT a flash in the pan reading as it was over a distance of 120 miles!

    I regularly get 63mpg form my SLK 250CDi on my Rossendale - Leeds commute over the M62, 57 on a "bad" day. Get 55 on the return trip though - the traffic is flowing faster.

    Overall mpg over 4000 miles though is 45.
