fella. As previously stated if you're worrying about MPG you might be looking at the wrong car - ST's are thirsty girls. And there's no way you're going to be able to drive it for long without (a) Putting your foot down whilst shouting 'Yeeeeehaaaaa' and (b) deciding it's not powerful enough and adding mods.

I went to northampton last week did a quarter of a tank on a 2 hour drive mpg 33. Then went for a blast today and did quaeter of a tank in bout 10mins.

Really depends on ya right foot Mate. with a map it might do a littlw better if the engine is running sweet and supporting mods help reduce engine work rate but on the flip side a map will mean ya be flat out most of the time.

Forget mpg if ya getting 32 now probably get mid to high 20s in the st. But its worth it.

Like I said come to half way house and you'll be sold on one

Hi Ryan and
along to the club mate.

I am getting just over 27MPG with a mixture of around town and long, national speed limit runs, that's running stage 3 software and mods (just don't tell people I drive like an old woman
).

Regardless of map the ST is a thirsty girl so be warned.
