    I have noticed that in general more people do seem to be in less of a hurry.

    Well, the trip today was Poland to Belgium. 550 miles. In hindsight too optimistic. Encountered lots of roadworks and traffic so 11 hours in the car (with a couple of comfort stops). We had to make the most of the open stretches and no speed limits so foot to the floor (85+ mph). Consequently MPG dropped down to 75. Not so rushed tomorrow so should be able to pull a few back

    We have the HEV but since we bought it they have brought out a PHEV model and a full electric version. Unfortunately the PHEV is £10k more and the Electric £20k more than mine so I don't think I shall be swapping anytime soon.

    Well the trip from Antwerp to Brum via the tunnel was the last leg. Roadworks on the M20, loads of traffic and congestion on the M25/M40/M42 meant the hybrid came into its own with the low speeds and the stop start and the overall trip mpg for the 2526 miles was 81.3
