Fuel consumption increases during winter?
It was pointed out to me in a recent thread, that even the mpg indication on my dashboard is not actually measured (the fuel isn't actually metered, for instance) - it's just inferred from some of the parameters of the engine and its conditions.

True but if the tool has been validated against experimental data and is trusted then it is useful; I don't know if Advisor has been put through a rigourous validation process though.

I run a diesel engine on my boat and, in the UK, we get a tax free allowance for 40% of the diesel fuel we buy because it's assumed it is used for 'other than propulsion' (heating and charging batteries). In a cold climate, you could ask for a similar consideration for road fuel????.
I use solid fuel for heating on my boat - but I only use a couple of tanks full per year so it's hardly an item, though.
