5 days in and I have driven 300 miles, display reads 44MPG. <br />
<br />
I have twice driven through appalling weather, today at speed on the motorway (within the 2500RPM I almost reached 70MPH).<br />
<br />
Some bits of the car get very dirty quickly, particularly the "running board" sections by the sills.<br />
<br />
The car is very comfortable and I am a very happy Duster driver.

Just passed the 500miles mark.<br />
<br />
I have left the MPG to see how it goes. A mixture of town ( I live in a valley and daily drive up steep hills ), country and motorway driving, had 43.4MPG. My picasso around town gave 41MPG over the winter so I am happy with the Duster on that front, especially has I expect it to get better.<br />
<br />
The ride is excellent - very smooth over potted roads, in fact at one point I wouldn't have known there were pots had the VW in front not been driving around them. I would say there is no excessive road noise. On the motorway the car had no trouble keeping up with traffic and on the occasion I overtook the turbo made it feel I was engaging hyperdrive! I only briefly went over the 2500revs mark whilst going up Holme Moss.<br />
<br />
Still a Happy Duster Driver.<br />

Now into 3 figures as I passed the 1000 miles mark today. MPG has not been reset and reads 44MPG.
