Wow, I've never seen a (unchipped/unmapped) v6 be more than 1mpg out.

Press and hold the 2 buttons on the stalk - S and R for 3 secs, and post up the 3 figures. I'll check if your config is right.

And I NEVER expect to get anywhere near manufacturers figures. I simply can't drive like our resident Sky employee.

Can't seem to get any config data or code by pressing s (on left stalk) and R (on right stalk) for 3 sec. engine on or off (accessory position)
just scrolls through the normal tripe like trip dist 575.7 , consumption 0 =19.6 trip consumption 0= 45.2 speed 0 =22 M/H
so that has changed since i last looked  ???
maybe i need to read that book in the glove box  ;D
also ,whilst I do not let peasants reside on my back seat ever, i do carry a boot full of tools ,probably the equivalent weight of a couple of fat people , dunno if that makes a difference   :-\

22.8mpg average currently on the 3.2, not been reset since last year.

It does run far, far better now itís my daily commuter and not used just weekly for odd run.

I managed 35mpg over last couple of tankfuls (I was actually able to fill it at Tescos yesterday now fuel prices have eased, to calculate the readings).  I'm a bit embarrased that clearly I'm not trying hard enough.


For Opti's benefit, the FC claimed 39mpg

Yes, reset at next brim, and then check it when you brim again, and compare you manual calculations over same period.

If there is any discrepancy (>1mpg), worthy of investigation, as the GM ones seem to be bang on (assuming maps haven't been fiddled)
