    Default 620 miles, 2 days 50.1mpg

    Had a magic couple of days did a run Ayrshire home, to Barnsley, to Derby, Bradford and home overnight in Cleckheaton road.

    Highlights were the A66 going South yesterday as the sun and frost made the run magical, and the A65 Keighley to Kendal today in the soft spring sun it was brilliant with a few good bursts of speed on some deserted stretches when I hooked up with an 11 plate Scirocco

    M6 police in Cumbria driving a 58 plate Volvo V50 and in West Yorkshire a black unmarked Audi A4 avant S line!

    Overall cruising the run I got 50mpg on the OBC, so kudos to the wee Vectra
