Hi there. car has only done about 1000 miles to date so we are still treating it gently for the most part. Current average is 36.3 based on the on board rather than fill to fill. Usage is mostly shortish journeys (30-40 miles) on country roads. One long journey up country mostly motorway gave 38.3
I did notice that finding the sweet spot on the curve for economy makes a big difference. The T2 engine is perhaps a little underpowered for the V40, we should have gone T3 I think, but it goes well enough when called for BUT at the expense of consumption.
