Martin's petrol efficiency experiment – official MSE blog discussion

Hello there,

Sadly, after 14 years of active service, the original Petrol efficiency experiment thread is now closed, so I've created a new one here, which is specifically to discuss the following blog by Martin:

Petrol Efficiency Experiment: An increase of 20% without increasing trip length

To discuss Martin's blog, please post below, and for full info on cutting the cost of fuel, see our Cheap petrol & diesel guide.
