    I think you need to embed the image in your post.
    Can you not use the Image URL button (farthest right button just above the text when you're quick replying)
    (third button from right when in advanced)
     
    Well done on the fuel economy by the way 
    Thats great for a FAST car.

    I really struggle with photos on this site, I have tried the box to insert an image and all it does is put a small blue box with a question mark inside it on the post.

    When we  bought our Macan, the mother-in-law asked me what mpg it would do.
    I politely pointed out that it was a Porsche,  not a Daihatsu, 1.0l diesel.

    Wow, that's pretty good for the 981 GTS.  As your car is PDK, I'm guessing that you had Coasting Mode activated.  As I've yet to drive a car that underestimates its own fuel consumption, I calculate my consumption based on brimming the tank.  The best I ever got in my 981 S was 37.4mpg in the Pyrenees of all places.  The jury's still out on my latest 981 GTS, as I've been having too much fun to go for an "economy run".

    The extra gear on the PDK certainly makes a difference on motorway slogs.  I thought 34 coming back 200 miles from the NEC was good for a manual.
