Filled up Transit 190 LWB 2.5D 1991 H REG.
Filled up at (95.9p per ltr £55) at good old Morrisons and got 405 Miles out of it well happy, works out around 32 miles per gallon. Not bad for this old work horse.

Quite hard to work out your MPG from that, the best way to do it is as Luke describes in the first post.
