About 60. I use to work in Newcastle and found that going slower didn't lose that much time, simply because I didn't have to fill up as much.

anything under 40mph 6th is no good, you will get more mpg in 5th than you will in 6th
Really? Why is that? I thought the lower the revs, the less the fuel consumption? :? Or am I being completely stupid?

if you drive at 40 mph and put cruise control on you can feel the jerking and pulling where there is just not enough speed for good mpg, its almost just riding along on the gears, if you put in 5th there is no jerking or pulling it just glides along, dont take this to the bank like, its only my thoughts, i often try these silly things out on the motor

I noticed that the other day when i was pissing about like Andy, the car was on and off the power and really jerky with cruise on in 6th doing under 50, better in 5th under 70 i reckon!
