The 'older' chap driving clocked me looking, bet he though i was a right
knobcheese as i burned him off in me 4.2!! I was on a call out & had no
choice but to take bob on a bloody great detour 'cos of a big smash on the
M1 south. Normally for long distance runs I take the Subaru, but i got
caught out halfway etc. I was crapping my pants as to what MPG i would get
on a half motorway, half A/B road blast. Truth is i got an average of 18mpg.
Livable considering if I give the Subaru serious pain i get less than 20!
The main thing i noticed is the utter comfort i got there & back in! It also
corners like a bloody car, good car at that.
