Kats .. is that town driving?....

My QQ 1.5 gets 39/42 in town, depending on weather

and 61MPG on a 85 mile journey Glasgow to Fife?

How does that compare to your Juke?...

Hi Fee, it's 15 miles motorway and 15 miles town driving each day. I find the mpg is better in town than on the motorway xxx
