180 best mpg

Yesterday had a 400 mile round trip for work and my work car is in the repair shop due some idiot In Tesco reversing into it So I decided I'd dust of the 180 as I can't stand the courtesy car its a proton enough said..... any way wasnt in any hurry so figured I'd see how good mpg I could get was mostly motorway miles with 2 small delays but averaged at 36.8 mpg was quite impressed

I've no idea how people get such high mpg, I can't seem to get any better than 25mpg! Very impressive.
