I used to use mine everyday, but as my daily commute is an 85 mile round trip, I racked up 17000 miles in 7 months. It was killing the car, costing a fortune in petrol and servicing, and I was getting too used to the power and performance.

So I bought myself a '91 Honda Civic ESi (automatic unfortunately :? ) for 800 quid, and now use that for the A-B slog, and keep the Scoob under a cover for weekends and fun days! I now get 50% more MPG, keep the miles off the scoob, and appreciate it a hell of a lot more when I get the chance to drive it!

Hey, we got a Honda Civic ESi too, not automatic though, but very reliable and cheap on fuel

Good choice m8! Just proves what discerning people we scooby owners are! Mine seems to do about 36mpg at the moment, and apart from costing over 300 just after I'd got it to get it serviced and through the MOT, should be as reliable as Jap cars usually are.

I can get over 320 to a tank full, and it only costs about 30 to fill up, compared to 225 miles on 40+ in the Scoob! Plus, using the Honda day-to-day means I keep the mileage, servicing costs and depreciation on the scoob to a minimum, which will mean I can afford to keep it and enjoy it (and carry on moddiing it :wink: ) for a lot longer than I would have been able to do before!

I just wish the Honda handled a bit better - with nearly 140k on the clock, it's a bit woolly! :shock:

honda

Ours used to be my mum and dad's - always garaged and less then 80k on the mileage :shock: Really appreciated the mpg when we took the little civic up to Scotland for a week - would have cost a fortune in the scoob and we clocked up over 1800 miles

Gar - you're not hijacking boss Not sure about the exact mpg but the book says it should do 43 + mpg which we reckon is about right , plus it's cheaper road tax - bonus
