I am afraid it is just impossible to say as there are too many variables! It suggests to me that you are on the enthusiastic side as a driver, but nothing wrong with that!

Normal. Mostly dependant on the traffic you drive in and not how much you floor it.

I aim for 24 but usually end up between 21 to 23.

996.2 C4 convertible, done 4000 miles since I got it in May av. 25.5

Had my son following me on a 200 mile ride. He’s just passed his test so we kept it below 70mph on m/ways. I averaged 31mpg on that run.

Last Sunday followed the North Eastern guys on a blast across the Pennines - my guess is I was well below 20mpg for that run.

4S manual, driven normally on relatively congested country roads... an indicated 23-25 mpg.

Motorway journeys... 30-32, or more in ideal conditions.

But I drive like a nun with 9 points on her license Embarassed

Merc C class cranks out 48 whatever I do with him. Herman averages 17 Embarassed Fuel economy doesnt really matter in a 911 lets be honest, however the main reason I crave an early 991 turbo S is the 29.1 mpg combined figure for pretty much the fastest road car available, absolute witchcraft!

Apparently other colours are available?

Not at all! Absolutely love it! Problem is I can’t help but push the pedal all the way down most of the time! Hence why my average mpg resembles nothing like the sales brochure.
