i had 34mpg showing on the evic on our last run back from the lake district, mind you the quick spurt upto ### mph didnt help and soon killed that but the guy in the golf who took my nose off when he cut us up did looked worried when all he could see in his rear view mirror was the JEEP badge on my bonnet
