Hi guys - am looking to get an 08-onwards JCW
in new year at some point and am weighing up the pros and cons of a JCW
. The Mrs and I dont need a big car (she has a new Mondeo company car) so I can afford something mad and small - I just love fast, small hatches.
I digress - one major selling point of the JCW
is the 'claimed' 39-40mpg that is touted on most websites describing the car, though I read on Pistonheads recently that a JCW
owner would be lucky to the point of impossibility of getting this on a normal, daily journey.
Does anyone get anything like this figure, or know if it is just a pie-in-the-sky claim or that it can be achieved?
My daily commute is 10 miles each way, either half town driving and half B-road, or half town driving and half dual carriageway so to be able to get around 40mpg would be amazing in such a quick car.
