I am only Eco Pro most of the time, and just switch to sport when there is a chance to have some fun. I accept that mpg will drop if I open it up, but it's the town runs that are puzzling me. Can hardly believe that 7mile/17min cold start run you got at 39mpg. The only way I can get up to that figure is by tootling along a motorway (where I see you've had 50+) and I did something very similar to that country run last night and only got high 20s, as usual.

Yeah that sounds off. I could tell you I am a better Eco driver but tbh it should only make a small difference. High 20s is me driving like a loon.
