    Hi Edwin

    Took me a while to find out!

    it’s a 5Dr Hatchback 1.2 55 E - seems pretty economical as I’ve only put 2.3 galls in and Guess Gauge is still higher than where it was when I picked up the car and I’ve done about 85 miles including some local running about at the weekend.

    Thanks , Gord. Another car and engine they don't sell here.
    Today in the Prius. 22 deg F in Elk Grove.
    10.0 miles , fcd = 51.1 x .943 = 48.2 MPG.
    The trip home this afternoon should yield mi-to-high 60's fcd.
    Tank is approx 61 MPG fcd.

    A nice bit of tail wind (SW) helped me.

    Today , in the Civic. 30 deg F , roads are covered with very slippery snow.
    Yes , the traction-control works in this car. No , it , doesn't really make it any
    easier to drive in 1st or 2nd gear. Yes, perhaps my tires are a bit old.
    35.1 miles, fcd = 40.9 MPG.

    The good news : the trip home in the Prius Friday night was 32.2 miles , fcd = 69.8 MPG.
    The Prius sits at fcd = 61.7 x .943 = 58.2 MPG.
