Are people really getting 40+ MPG in Gen 2?

    This was just before my last fill up. I’d arrived at work with fuel running low with 569 miles (from a full tank) on the odometer.

    I made it back to my neck of the woods and a subsequent refill at 585 miles and 65.3 mpg on the MFD.

    It was originally much higher due to the seasonally warm weather in London, at 67.1 mpg - till I ran into a heavy traffic jam caused by an accident - took 3.0 hours to travel 4 miles!
    Mpg dropped to 62.0 mpg by the time I got home.

    Still managed to get it back up to 65.5 mpg as seen in the photo at the top.

    The photo below shows the highest I ever got it, approaching half tank - all via daily London commuting.

    The last photo below shows my MPG from the petrol station in the morning, straight to work - I’d just filled up (it took 45.2 litres of fuel).

    Lucky you on MFD accuracy. My Gen2's MFD mileage calls are 6% to 8% under actual mpg.
