Oh please, am I really hearing a mass debate over the fact that you may have to spend a further £30 in fuel to get to all the meets. You wanna try running the intruder at a £1 per mile.

How about this solution to your problem. In stead of spending £20 at the services on the way for breakfast and some sort of rabbit food just make your own sandwich and also I don't think it's the fuel that is the factor I think it's the journey time, as someone said 6 hours for an 18 mile ride ain't good.

I have this sorted now, take for instance long mynd I will be there on the Friday and will leave on the Monday. By doing this I have a long weekend of riding and chilling and eating the food that I have cooked.

Morale of the story is buy one of these

Was talking to my boss today about a friend of his who's got a Rover SD1 with a Spitfire engine. Gets about 17 to the gallon on the motorway. Cruises at 600rpm though.


..... you should try fitting one of those to a series Land Rover, 15 mpg tops.

Now even more pertinent - if I had a 'bleedin car to put 'bleedin fuel in, in the 'bleedin first 'bleedin place, I'd be a whole lot happier...
