Worst Ever MPG?

I am looking forward to waking the neighbours up each morning with the industrial clatter ... my 2 year old daughter heard a D5 on start up at the dealer and said "Tractor Daddy" .....

Well, I'm back and all sooty now. New V70 D5 (185bhp) due for delivery monday. I can't believe I'm getting excited about owning a diesel estate. Performance (on paper) is nearly the same as my Golf GTI Turbo, but with 40+mpg ... I hope its better than the Mundano diesel I have had as a courtesy car... beerchug.gif

Well, the tractor arrived yesterday. Feels nearly as quick as my old T5, managed to spin the wheels in 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the dry. Glad the company are paying for the tyres. A cracking motor, I'm well chuffed apart from a 2 faulty elec windows. Highly recommended motor (no I don't work for Volvo). bowdown.gif

I am well impressed, but the missus has got the hump. She wanted something flashier (Merc, BMW etc).

Ebay shopping list -

Flat cap

Pipe

Slippers

Labrador

Caravan (nooooooooooo, stop it !)

My Seat Leon 150 diesel (remapped) averaged a scooby-like 16mpg over a day around Spa! With Reveo remapping it even sounds like one - honestly!

I got an average of 36 on a recent trip to Southampton from Worksop in the early hours. No prizes for guessing what speed I "may" have been doing sekret.gif
