34 not bad considering that's with 3 adults and a minor and that's also a CLA, but I would expect a figure around 36 as he kept it under 70 mph. My best is 42, no traffic and no passengers, and I've got a lighter car, but on a 22 mile trip, half of which on the highway doing just under 90 mph which is considerably more than this guy's CLA, and the other half on B roads doing 45. And I wasn't trying, or I wouldn't go 90 on the highway. The same trip with little B road traffic can drop that to 38 mpg. But really all these figures are so close that it's down to little details, and I doubt it will ever affect your average monthly cost of running your car, not even with current gas prices. 3 am blasts will be right below 24 and my average since reset and that is since I bought it, which is several hundreds of hours, is 27.
Friday we done a trip from Somerset to Blackpool, 3 adults, 2 kids, boot completely full, full tank of fuel and managed 42.2mpg
Yesterday we travelled from Alton Towers to Somerset with 3 adults, 2 kids, boot full, some extra bits of Alton Towers merchandise on the floor, a full tank of fuel less about 15 miles worth, and we managed 41.5
Both trips total was 558 miles and were 95% motorway.
Car is currently sitting at exactly 19998 miles and in for it's B service tomorrow.
Next time we do a long journey I will do my own video covering it.
Once I've got my current batch of TVs out the way that I'm testing, I will knock up a couple of videos giving my 2 year review on the car, highlighting the pro and the cons of ownership.
The videos will probably go down like a lead balloon on the channel as people get funny if it isn't anything to do with a TV, hence why I've refrained from posting more.Shame really as I suspect that I've probably covered more miles than any other YouTuber and have had a a number of issues and now have one with a knocking coming from potentially the diff?
