A180 mpg update 28.5mpg 259 miles

Car still running in.
Approx 500 miles on the clock but still really poor mpg even for an auto

28.5mpg over 259 miles.
Not quite a full tank
All school run miles.

Let's hope it improves otherwise I'll have the x5 back

3d gel plates for new A180

I really dislike the full mercedes black surround (especially on a white car). So time to remove the covers and fit cleaner plates.

Need some plate fixings too

Bottom band just pulls off
Easier to put your new plate in the holder and mark off the positions.
I chose to use 4 screws but you could use only 2 or sticky pads.

Far cleaner look now even if there are a lot of screws on show.

Car treated to a full wash.  Chip touch up on any scrapes.  And some polish.

Mot due soon.  Front left sidelight not working for some reason so need to fix that.
