Knowing my previous 75 had been excellent in the snow on 195/65/15 Goodyear NCT5's I thought I would dig out my scruffy set of Crowns from the garage and fit a set of part worn winter tyres.
The grip, from the Goodyear Ultra Grip 7's, has been excellent but, an added bonus would appear to be that, I am getting 41MPG (over approx 800 miles) at the moment as opposed to my average just below 35MPG when I had the Unions on with Nexxen Summer Tyres (Approx 5k miles).
Had noticed this 75 not being as economical as my last, but had put it down to it having done 60k more miles than the old, and possibly injector wear and tear.
What are your thoughts? Could just changing down to narrower tyres on the 15's account for the better fuel economy? Nothing else has changed.
