    Default Personal best on fuel range

    After a disappointing result at a RR day a few weeks back i found a few problems.

    Had a coolant leak causing everything to be waaaaaaaaaaaaay to hot and also a split in an air pipe.

    Fixed these trecked back to TMS to check stuff out.

    On the way there i broke by personal best on trip range.



    Woot woot! First time ive ever seen 400!!

    Note the time on the clock though as shortly after that i had a BMW 330i up my trumpet and 7 minutes and 10 miles later it said this:-





    Dam!


    oh and had it dyno'd and as you can see, problem gone and i made 1.6 bhp more and 5 lb/ft more than last time, lol




    Was nice to have just me, the car and the open road for 8 hours though

    Thats instant consumption on the display, not an average.

    My range meter used to get upto 500 + but for some reason these days it only goes upt to a couple of hundred even if i've been averageing over 35 mpg! Allthough saying that on a 80mile round trip last weekend i averaged 45.5 mpg which is my personal best and i was well chuffed. Not bad for a 2.0T Siggy me thinks.

    Not the highest on here, as someone has seen over 1000 miles as they were slipstreaming a truck downhill for ages then refuelled just after...
