Maybe I have a challenge now...
The real challenge is to get the numbers as low as possible - that shows the car's not wasted on you! :lol:

I’ve recorded (ok, the Jaguar remote app has) almost 200 journeys in the last year and the best I’ve managed is 35.2mpg as mostly on motorway with average speed cameras at 50mph, worst is 10.3mpg and overall average is 23.4mpg. Seems ok to me for what it is.

I measure my consumption by the tank so my excesses are somewhat hidden! Best tank consumption: 20.67mpg, worst 12.04 with an overall average of 17.1mpg, but most of my journeys tend to be short after a cold start. Cold starts really kill fuel economy (if that's the right word for a V8!).

Just achieved 34.3 mpg average in an SVR with passenger and fully laden boot on a trip from home in the north of England to Eastern France, it included most types of roads, towns, cities and motorways, I kept within speed limits most of the time with the occasional heavy right foot to overtake.
The figures were averaging over 35mpg until I got lost in a city and navigated cobble roads to get out!
This last day the average has dropped slightly to around 32.8 mpg as we hit the steep and winding mountain roads.

The car is now getting better on fuel as its now run in with 2900 miles. MPG getting better as indicated on its first return journey from a long run. 8-) Air con was on and drove in D normal mode. Not bad for a V8!

After 4+ years I've never attempted a hyper mile!!

Tomorrow morning at some ridiculous time I am leaving Derby for Lowestoft which I intend to do in a single sitting so I'll give it a go and post the result...
