What always confuses me about the standardised mpg tests is that they don't appear to include the effect of wind resistance, do they?

Brim to brim calculations are the most accurate way to measure mpg.
clangnuts is right - I drove over 700 miles on a tank once last year, low fuel light came on, did another 50 miles , indicated range dropped to 0, did another 15 miles, finally got some diesel (previous garage was empty!) and I still had 3 litres left in the tank. Wouldn't recommend it though :eek:

I've spent 3 weeks driving a brand new 2012 Kia Picanto 2 Ecodynamics 1.25L car. Supposed to be 65mpg. So far £40 of fuel has been put into the car and has travelled 300 miles with a mix of urban and non-urban and now on empty. Average price paid £1.40 per litre. By my calculation I think that's around 43mpg.
