Although my commute is mainly 40-60mph there is some stop-start and the occasional bit of foot-down-fun. According to the SID (which I calculate is rarely more than a couple of percent out) I almost never drop below 30mpg. I reset the mpg every time I fill up. My impression of the Ecopower engine is that it is both powerful(ish) and reasonably economical if driven sensibly. P&e
