36-38mpg on a motorway run 22 24mpg round town sorry i don't really get the point of the video.
They are good figures for the motorway!!

Though I don't own an ST (not yet), reading the famous MPG thread the most anyone has seen is 30mpg on average plus when I ask people about the ST they always hit out its a gas guzzler.

Very reassuring to see this though Gaz as the majority of my miles will be motorway!

i did stoke to doncaster a few weeks ago 110 miles on a quarter of a tank, i think that's really good, its all about how far you press the pedal.

it is a fuel guzzler if you want it to be, can easily go to 12-14mpg with 320bhp on tap.

I can average 36.5 over a 5 day commute, 80% motorway. That figure dives dramatically when it hits the weekend tho

My new job in the city centre of Glasgow hence no parking! So it won't be used going then.
My girlfriends house however is 34 miles away, 32 of them motorway - I had already accepted that if i saw 30 mpg that would be good going.
