Expect a 20% drop in economy @ 2 Deg C compared to 20 Deg C on short runs where you are having to warm the engine every time.

Also expect a 20% hike on easy driven motorway trips to local town hopping

but yes sadly all today's figures are derived in Lab conditions on rolling roads (no hills) - they all do exactly the same process and think this needs some better regulation as the petrol's will always get closer to their claimed figures (for whatever reason)
