Upon reading comments I have been driving in Comfort mode for the last two days. Mpg has dropped from 30 to 24. Can this be right? does the car need an oil change? Thanks again guys. Will continue to experiment with the driving modes!
That can't be right, I was getting near 40mpg driving from east London to Westminster everyday. The home journey involved me queuing down the embankment for 40min to do 3miles.
