So good on fuel.

I have the 2.5, running in, turbo disconected and 4000 rev limit.Filled up with fuel just outside Castle Coombe and travelled home 20 miles. Next day drove to Scoobyclinic at about 3800-4000 rpm 85-90 mph. 170 miles then drove home another 170 went down town last night for a pint then back home 15 miles. The petrol light is still not on thats 375 miles on the same tank.

Hi all
These petrol prices are getting silly.
I stopped at a service station on the way to Preson last week and they wanted 99.9 for super. 10 was all they got off me. Sainsbuy sell super for 91.9 nearish me.
Perhaps disconnecting that turbo is a good idea

No way I enjoy every penny of that 45 a week petrol :twisted:



Kev :wink:
