This is a real problem for company car drivers who are refunded mileage by their employers with rates set by HMRC which are based on these inaccurate figures.
This means that many are seriously out of pocket and there is nothing that can be done. (I have contacted HMRC about this as my car costs 25 pence per mile in fuel but can only claim back 19 pence per mile).

You'd exceed it a hell of a lot more if you drove at 70 mph... (The air resistance at 90 mph is huge, and to be honest I'm astonished you're exceeding any quoted efficiency at that speed.)

MSE should be concentrating on the message that air quality is the 2nd biggest killer of people in the UK and getting people to turn their engines off when stationary would go a long way to help with this.

No news really. Would prefer Whatcar to do investigation into why government and council's are so obsessed with creating hold ups and jams which are bad for mpg, therefore bad for emissions and the environment.
In past few years councils in Scotland seem to have policy of paving over the inshots for bus stops and instead having buses stop on carriageway causing queues, no proper ongoing review of junctions to adjust traffic light settings, etc, no investigations into traffic flow on major roads/motorways (e.g stuck in jam for 2 miles then suddenly road completely clear). We should be actively working on better traffic flow but car hating politicians are too easily led by green lobby who are actually adding to problem.
Apologies for going a bit off topic.
