    So, I live in Hampshire, and I'm originally from central Scotland

    Tonight I'm driving the 398 miles back home for a long weekend.

    Scenario is

    Cls 3.0 v6 DIESEL

    just me ( no kids or wife or their accoutrements)

    One bag (not the mother in law)

    Route is
    Basingstoke to Newbury A339
    Onto A34
    M40
    M42
    M6
    M74
    Glasgow a/b roads
    Home.

    I tend to sit between 75/80ish

    I also don't do any stops.

    Can you guess my mpg???

    The prize is knowing you have guessed right over your peers. And you can keep your head held high

    Well you had better be careful at those speeds,lots of cameras about hope you have a decent sat nav with the camera positions on it,so not the one fitted to the MB,that said,38mpg,if you were going to keep around 70 then just maybe 40mpg.

    There's a massive difference in mpg between doing 70 and 80 mph so I'll say 44mpg.

    When I had an Audi SQ5 with a 3.0l Bi-Turbo diesel and did long motorway journeys at legal speeds I didn't get much over 38-39MPG. So you will probably get around the same so lets say:

    39.3

    Take the passenger and rear seats out, remove the door cards and drive it in your underpants - should get another mpg! :thumb::crazy::bannana:
