The first refill of the new Yaris has been completed. The 1.4 diesel consuming machine managed a respectable 68mpg this week. The former petrol 1.0 on the same route managed 52mpg. The improvement in the fuel consumption means I only need to fill up on a Friday rather than mid-week. This also means a saving in actual fuel costs, saving money is great.
This month it finally happened, I replaced my car. The 2001 Toyota Yaris had reached 161k miles and although running fine had a couple of expensive wear and tear bits to correct and an MOT due. So it has been replaced by a 2005 Yaris in Black (This one has all the paint on). Fuel efficiency is unknown at the moment but by the end of the week when it gets filled up I will know if I'm going to be better off or not.
