    I would have thought Veh-bah. Good to know.

    By Mike Weber, I assume you refer to the illustrious Buffalo Sabres defenceman.

    Although the Weber Company is Italian the name is German, so you will hear the r at the end. (There is a significant German speaking population in the North Eastern part of Italy, a region called Sud-Tirol).

    and i was referring to the baster son of Andrew Lloyd Webber, the composer...

    I am familiar with Sud-Tirol and the language complications of Northern Italy.

    I had forgotten Edoardo Weber had a Swiss father. For some reason, I had also thought that W in German was pronounced as a V in English.

    Hopefully not considered as spam.

    34,89mpg (6,74l/100km) in the Echo. Just aired up the tyres and I've done about 60 miles(~100km) highway which should bump me close to 36mpg (~6,5l/100km) on this tank.

    Harley's been averaging around 48mpg (4,9l/100km) on my commute.
    An it harm none, do as ye will

    Approximately 79% of statistics are made up.

    BMW 320i (6cyl): 25.2 mpg
    Citroen C4 1.6HDi (110ps): 32.1mpg

    Both doing short urban journeys from cold, although the BMW has been into the countryside today.

    Is that done mainly cruising at 55mph or what? We have a 2009 C3 1.4HDi (70ps) in the family and even with the smaller engine, that gets nowhere near your figure.

    The best I've ever had from the C4 was 56mpg on a journey down the motorway to London Heathrow airport. That was driving at 70mph most of the way, and 50 through the roadworks on the M1. It was unbearably boring though and as a result on my next 100+ mile journey, I avoided motorways wherever possible! However, that did highlight the C4s lack of overtaking ability.

    It is my wife's car for going to work, (if she does not take the Bicycle for her 20 km one way trip.....) and we use it for "long" distance driving in the Netherlands, cruising at constant speeds of 105 kph. Flooring is a word that has not entered the vocabulary. The EHdi version has been specially developed, and includes a start stop system. The C5 has been set aside for foreign trips only and in case we need to transport furniture or something.

    I know... misspell (mispell?) it way too often (must be a subliminal fetish for grilling), but considering the amount of bad spelling/grammar around here didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition! Or rather, the Dutch one...

    Anyway, went to a hotter plug and re-jetted... the 356 is now running much better and returned 20.3 MPG.
