    Default First run with fat *****

    went to lake district rather than uni today. loaded up FB with wife & kid headed to Shell garage. filled FB up with diesel extra and reset trip computer. on the way down used cruise (first time using it for any distance) and was returning an average of 55mpg before I got to the penrith junc. the 25 or so miles to boness was slow as most people can't go above 30mph on A roads on the way back via hardknot and ullswater I was stuck behind idiots going too slow before I was stuck behind a coach so hardly got above 30mph most of the way along to the M6. headed back up with cruise set to 70mph. Had a bit of a sore back at the end still not got the seating position correct but foot was in perfect health

    info from trip

    340mile trip
    52.3 mpg
    average 50mph
    distance left 361miles

    had I done that in the punto GT I'd have got 35mpg. would have had more had I not had ignorant slow people (not the coach) not giving way in front.

    Don't know what difference the shell extra makes but its my local station and cheaper than BP same price as supermarket. car however is now manky

    POAH you picked a fantastic day to visit 'god's country'; scenery must have been crystal clear. Was pining for the hills from my office all day
    Living here you get used to the dithering ***** with one eye on the road and one on the hills and as you're no doubt well aware now, overtaking places are few and far between (3.2 V6 helps ).
    That 52.3 mpg is seriously impressive!
