That is taking the p1ss somewhat I have to agree – another reason to never fill up on the motorway!

Mind you I did 750 miles last week, all on Shell V Power at 145.9, so nearly as bad. An expensive week!

Just did a 700-ish mile round trip from the South Coast through to the Norfolk area, and the 3.5 Barge averaged 32.4 mpg! Pressed on on the motorways, so didn't dawdle. Sunday was brutal for rain and spray on the M3, saw three wrecks on there, two of which happened seconds in front of us. 5 Star NCAP seemed real important that day!

 Keep smiling! Paul.

Yes I always feel at ease, on my relatively frequent forays around the M25, that there is an air bag for every eventuality….

In my youth I drove a 650 mile round trip from Somerset to Scarborough in a car with bench seats and no seat belts at all. Not sure I would care to do that these days!
