    MPG - very good, lowest i see is 36, highest 50 on a motorway run with air con!

    Reliability seems ok, mine has a few little things like when i accelerate from too low down i get a squeaky noise that i cant figure out, sounds like a belt perhaps.

    Doesnt burn any oil.

    Performance is pretty reasonable for a big heavy car, its a hell of a lot better than the 1.8 vvti i test drove before hand (5 speed).

    Mine is a 2006 55 Facelift SRI Direct on 92k

    What is the FPR?
    And what is the new one/old one with regards to pump? What should I look for/quiz the seller on?
