Mission Accomplished


Just reporting in. General cruise at 50 to 55 mph, average fuel consumption a staggering 20 mpg, round trip 1042 miles. Sludgy fuel filter gave some grief when things got a bit hilly, whipped that out and ran filterless 'till a replacement was secured from a plant hire outfit in Muir of Ord (free of charge). Five minute job to refit and all's well. Expedition adventures and incidents to follow. MORE TRAVEL !

I'm so glad you made it. When I saw it in the workshop I have to admit I went and said a few prayers. In the Queen's Head.

Ah - Ben, the "staggering" bit about the 20mpg was that I had been expecting somewhere between 10 and 15 !!!!!!
