All your readouts seem to be miles off mine, I think I just cant drive :P
Did a 70MPH run on motorway with CC set, average consumption was about 35 as per trip computer so I guess it is technically possible but not achievable by myself.

yea, btw what happened, parked the car or any actual issues?

with mpg I find that I need to sit at 65mpg to get anything good, as soon as the turbo starts spooling mpg drops so I might as well be doing more than 70.

Car is just going to be left parked up now as I have my partners corsa to run around in, was a tough decision but now not going to use it probably till next year and save some funds for forging the engine. Car is still sound though so no problems..

Did it actually fail the MOT on those emissions?

yeh but MOT is now up today. But im looking at getting a full system to replace it anyway so cant really be bothered to do any work on it if im replacing the whole thing soon anyway. Might as well get it all done properly and better than just fixing that problem.
