Cool

The Bear done well on fuel, we got 25.6mpg. Which is pretty good for the beast. Especially at Warp Factor 3 and a bit.

V8 fuel consumption isn't as bad as everybody thinks it is, 28mph is easily achievable on a run provided you don't get overenthusiastic.

Hi Peter, sounds like weather and sausages were good - sorry to miss another meeting. In any case my Rover rather inconveniently gave up the ghost on the M20 to London that weekend at the section near Maidstone where the lorries get backed up so there is no hard shoulder on either carriageway. So a quick Olympic hurdle over the barrier for me and Steph ! Highways agency were pretty good with three trucks needed to close lane, act as a buffer vehicle and take the car away. All now fixed. Under bonnet fuel pump was the problem. I think I may be missing the next meeting too but will come along as soon as I can ! Look forward to seeing everyone soon. Steve
