I don't think i ever saw 40 on the mini, except downhill with the engine off... i did however reset mpg before I handed it back, and over the 35 miles of single and dual carriageway between me and the garage I traded it into, i mananged to get it down to a displayed average of 9. It took a bit of doing, but i succeeded by keeping it above 5000rpm all the way, with the TC off...
It surprised me too Rob...but what was even more surprising was that when i bought it two years ago the insurance was cheaper than the old white Audi 80 1.6 turbo diesel i had! An 8500 two seater convertible sports car that was cheaper to insure than 500 quids worth of 17 year old 1.6 diesel german tractor...doesn't make sense.
