My mpg and cost per mile

What's the MPG like? Can I use chip fat and veggie oil? What about LPG?

I agree with that sentiment, the 2.0 will get up everything in the end! Just frustrating at times when others don't keep the momentum from the downhill going into an uphill and leave the poor old Bongo struggling :mrgreen:

Just back from Cornwall (never been before, I have definitely missed out as it was fantastic!) we travelled about 900miles in all and a rough calculation gives just over 31mpg average for the whole trip, not too shabby.

Not shabby at all, esp considering Cornwall has lots of ups, downs, and narrow lanes. =D>

We thoroughly enjoyed Cornwall too, we split our 10 days, 5 in Bude, Cornwall and then 5 in the New Forest Hampshire. Definitely less hills in Dorset...

Here are my statistics over 35,000km - you seem to be getting great results.

Just noticed your 2.0lt is a tin top, mine has the AFT, so this would possibly account for the slight drop in average MPG.
