    Default 1St trip yesterday

    Had the car a while but only use it locally. Did 394 miles Swansea to Portsmouth and back at an average speed of 59mph, and 40.9 mpg. Didn't expect that from the 2.2.

    Leicester to Folkestone. Sangatte to just south of Arras . Some 285 miles. Average speed 62.5 mph. 4 hours 28 mins driving. 38.7 MILES PER GALLON. NOT EXPECTED IN MY '57 plate 2.2 Direct. Almost 50% better than my V6 2.5 Cougar

    Still another 3,000 miles to go before I get home. I'll keep checking !.

    Update................... Now up to 565 miles total reaching just south of Orleans. Average speed dropped to 58.5 mph (due to the 1 hour crawl round the Paris inner ring) and the mpg has fallen to 37.2 due to increase in crusing speed to around 85mph on the autoroutes. Tomorrow it starts to get a bit hillier. Crossing the Central Massif down to Clermont Ferrand and towards the Millau Viaduct.

    Oh yes, excellent drive! Did a road trip to the Millau Viaduct a couple of years ago with two other guys from here. Brilliant time.
