So it was in the UK using the Imperial Gallon, but still an impressive feat AutoExpress was able to pull off.

>That’s not the only trick up the John Cooper Works MINI’s sleeve, though. Despite packing enough punch to cover 0-60mph in only 6.5 seconds, the supermini can now add wallet-friendly 50mpg-plus fuel economy to its impressive list of credentials. That’s 25 per cent more than the maker’s claimed 40.9mpg combined figure. But only if you know how to handle this hot hatch…

Sure the price of gasoline in the US is dropping, but I know there have to be a few of you out there that don’t have your foot in it *all the time*. What kind of MPG are you getting from your JCW or GP?
