68 MPG is pie in the sky unless you drive everywhere in 5th at 50mph. I think my mate manages 55 ish on a sensible run and nearer 40 overall though it gets allot of stick all the time. Saying that Mums panda should do 53 mpg and manages 43 overall though thats allot of local driving.
The twin air would tear the 1.2 a new one, the torque is much greater and the way it piles the revs on is surprising.
The noise may not be to everyones taste but I'd still say to try one. Its actually pretty refined when cruising along and a hoot when you want to cane it. It will cost a few more £ to buy but I reckon the Zero road tax and novelty could make it hold its money better than the 1.2 maybe.
