    Default The next time I moan about how much Diesel I buy..

    If I ever come on here complaining about fuel consumption, just remind me of the two journeys I've done so far in the Jag.

    Car arrived outside house with 3/4 tank of Petrol. Reading to Bristol airport and back, Reading to Southall and back.

    Just had to fill it up!!!!!!

    Average mpg, according to the trip computer, which the old man says is pretty accurate - he does it the old fashioned way too... 24 mpg.

    Average speed 55mph!!!

    At one point I think I approached 85mph! The rest of it's on cruise control at around 75!

    Please please hurry up nice new DIESEL!!

    Bluddy cars mental. Came out of the roadworks on the M4 (50 mph limit) Pressed resume on the cruise control, I'd set it at 80something, It Kicked down THREE gears and accelerated as hard as it could! Beemer behind just got very small!

    Now I see why the old man drives with a permanent grin!
