    Last night to garage, motorway route, crosswind N7, raining, 59°F:
    50.9 (FCD 53.6) / 22.0

    Tank down 0.1 at 51.2 (FCD 54.0) / 510.2 / Range 170 . Guess gauge F____|_«««E . UG steady at 48.1 / DTE 142

    Drove home in an '06 VW Polo (3 pot engine) - no FCD so no idea but 1/2 tank so free motoring!

    Picking my car up tonight so I'll see what damage the service has done to my so far decent tank.......

    Last night went motorway route in the VW Polo - traffic completely stopped for 5 minutes while a broken down vehicle was rescued then crawled at 20mph along the newly top-dressed section (which still has no lines painted) where people normally drive along at 40 to 50! Glad I wasn't in my car!

    Collected car, all good and not too much damage to the tank:
    10.3 (FCD 10.8) / 1.1 - had to be done!

    Garage to home, net uphill, 70°F:
    47.0 (FCD 49.5) / 3.0

    This morning, motorway route, 57°F:
    51.6 (FCD 54.3) / 21.5

    Tank down 0.4 at 50.8 (FCD 53.5) / 533.2 / Range 135 . Guess gauge F____|_«««E . UG down 0.1 at 48.0 / DTE 115
