I could not find bridge auto parking mode on my C-HR.

I wondered how she did it. The barriers must have been up when she drove onto the bridge.

I still need to learn how to get 70mpg
Live by the sea on flat land with 30 40 and 60 limits lol.

I also pumped my tires up 1-2psi too much and selected light alloys from Oz racing coupled with eco oreintated tyres one size slimmer than usual so it slices the air better.

This is with a car permanently loaded with around 100kgs of gear too.

I guess the engine is also loosening up but my mpg drops almost 10 percent if I use supermarket fuel and sounds like a bag of spanners. Its killed 4 peoples cars here that I know off. Try esso 97 one day :)

I buy bulk fuel as part of my job, and here in Bristol most of the fuel comes from the same uni-tank, which is actually run by Esso . So unless you buy a higher octane fuel, all the petrol you buy will be the same regardless of where you buy it.

Agreed, it's only the additive pack in 'super duper wallet cleanser' :D

I have run mine for 3200 miles on supermarket fuel and rarely pay more than £1.10ppl, the fact that it's sitting at 66.5mpg overall and I get 500 miles from a tank indicates that it's running fine.

I do put a dose of Millers petrol ecomax in every other tank

Except for the additives that also include ethanol. Which is cheap and hygroscopic. Guess what people keep finding in their petrol. Water. The guy who tested my gfs car said the computer read out said octane too high. Ie too much ethanol. So much it wouldnt fire untill we put some branded fuel in and off it went.

All the stations within 20 miles of me in folkestone have an obvious affect on me and my car. Im allergic to ethanol too how ironic. So all the people saying sainsburys is fine probably live somewhere else.

Esso 97 has zero ethanol but supermarkets add as much as they can get away with and tests show they "accidentally" overdo it sometimes. So the reason I see a mpg gain using esso 97 is ethanol mixed fuel has around 5 percent less energy.

Had to snigger that the screen 'aint cracked :)

Thanks to DutCHR for his article link

I don't read Dutch language - best guess from pictures proved correct once through Google Translate

=================================================================================================

Schiphol - Thursday afternoon, June 22, the driver of a passenger car was released on the bridge on the Brugweg.

The driver came to the bar with her car with the back of the vehicle on the bridge. When the bridge opened, the car was lifted and clamped. The driver could leave her vehicle on time. Both shipping and car traffic have long been impaired.
