Ok before i get jumped on i diden`t buy the JCW for the fuel Economy but since i was going on a trip with the kids and Mrs in toe i couldent blast it. So my trip was from rochdale near manchester to Thorpe park.
So filled it up wednesday morning returned tonight filled it up again and got 51.20 MPG surprised. so stuck it in green mode 69 mph all way down and back but encountered about 1 hour slow traffic coming back up M1. A total of 470.4 miles with 30 miles still showing it was boreing but better than the greif from the Mrs for going to fast.

I know what you mean here OP; I`ve owned a boat-load of performance cars over the years, and I honestly never thought I`d see the day when a car that shifts like the JCW does would appear, but it`s here now....I`m getting cracking MPG from mine, anything between low 30`s to low 40`s - Now THAT, nobody can complain about !

50 mpg on a JCW is very good! Some people don't like green mode but it's a fantastic option I think.

If a JCW can do 50mpg I wonder what the best someone has got in a Cooper D!


Now:F56 MINI Dooper MidnightBlack (Chili, Full White leather, Connected XL Nav, adaptive dampers, heated seats, HUD, Harmon Kardon speakers, black alloys)
Before:F56 MINI Dooper IcedChoc (Chili,VisualBoost,Leather)
Before: R56 MINI Cooper Lightning Blue (Chili,half leather)
Before :R50 MINI One Moonlight Black (Pepper)
+ 2 Audi TT MK2s in between.

The thing is the green mode offers nothing over Mid mode when at constant throttle/road speed. So sitting on the motorway without the AC on doesn't improve things.
