    just shows the reliability of trip computers.......

    your average mpg is 24.56mpg

    5921 miles / 241 gallons = 24.56846473029046 mpg

    Average speed is interesting too, how are you measuring that? I used to get about 55/60 to and from Manchester in a car, ok we did 90 or so coming home from late night games which boosted it. :Blush: But in the motorhome my readout showed an average of about 15 with the ins and outs of aires, campsites, fuel stops, hypermarkets plus towns and the like all bringing the average down. :Confused:

    Took it from the trip computer in the van. I also took average speeds between each campsite as a secondary check and they varied between 21 and 55 mph. We stayed in 40 campsites in total so the mph was very different depending on the roads we took.
