The warmer weather is proving to be very useful for something. My fill up this evening gave me 384 miles for 26.31 ltrs. Thats 66.35 mpg!

Really pleased with that. I reckon that if the AC wasn't on so much because it was so warm early in the week that 70 mpg would be a real possibility.

Have something to contribute?

It depends on your route but yes 70+mpg will be possible in the warmer summer months. The a/c does reduce mpg's if used to excess - especially in town, though using the eco function (assume the Auris has it too) does reduce the a/c output by about 50% so you can keep cool and save mpg's.

If wanting to save fuel I'll normally leave the heater/ac off until I get upto speed otherwise it can really eat into the cold start mpg's.
