    Default Van Hire

    I have to hire a One Ton Transit the weekend to go from Birmingham to Reading and back, What I was wondering is how many miles to the gallon do these Diesels do, as the hire firm use,s a " fill to what you need" rather than "full to full" so I don,t want to give it back with half a tank of fuel, as you can bet your bottom dollar when I pick it up it will be nigh on empty.

    Going from Brum to Reading, I'd start with at least £20. When I've hired vans, I've only ever got about 25 mpg, but that's all been around town.

    Thats much what I thought about doing. 95% of the driving will be on the motorway, so I don,t want to run out of fuel, but yep if I put "say" £20 in I will be able to judge how far I will get back home, 25 mpg, I get more than that out of my 3.2 Vectra, but now I will have an idea how far I will get.
    Cheers Lad,s.

    I hope it is a new one, not one that has had the living daylights bashed out of it.
