Took my caddy for a long drive, the mpg is getting better with more miles on the clock :) 60mph on motorways and speed limits everywhere else

Did you do anything to get it running better, best I can get normal driving is 55 odd MPG, dropping to high 40s on motorway

Tried to unlock the sliding door mechanisms. As I bought the vehicle it seems like they locked the 2 side sliding doors and can’t open it.

Engine is standard, and without emissions update. It’s lowered 40mm on the front.
I found that once I drive it much over 60mph the mpg really starts to drop, but with congested roads you rarely get anywhere much quicker. I was considering swapping to a T5.1, but I know the mpg will be considerably less.
