What's the MPG like? ;)
I've no idea what the exact figure but should do somewhere between 7 & 10 US GAL per hour.. Varies based on RPM, mixture of fuel/air and winds :p

8 USGAL is rougly 30ltrs and an average cruise speed of about 122kts is roughly 140mph if that helps for anybody to work out the average mpg..

MPG is Miles Per Gallon, Max. Not Minutes Per Gallon. :p

How many miles you cover on one gallon is the MPG, like my car averages 42 miles per gallon.


Anything that has an engine and wheels count since you can drive it.

This is not to drive and park, Yet has no wheels or engine. But it's very very cheap to run

hahaha, I know! But fuel burn on the plane is done by hours so you know how much flying time you have left rather than miles :p

Your car averages more MPG than my 1.25 fiesta.. Only get 40 from mine!

Diesel - that's me driving like a BMW driver too. Best tank I had was 52 I believe.

Passed my (up to 47bhp) bike test last week! The examiner said to me "It's a shame it's only an A2 license, I'd toss you the keys to my bike any day, no problem!" What a cool dude, reminded me of my driving test where me and the examiner just had fun being out on the roads. Looking at getting another bike for longer distances now, two bikes and a car, what am I doing really?! :p

This photo was before I took it home, cut off the L-plate and nailed it to the garage wall.

I cleaned my (what is now really a van with my new job) car yesterday. I'll post a pic up tomorrow before it gets absolutely filthy from driving to York again! :p

This is my beauty.. She's so reliable! xD

Can't be as bad as First, most of what I've seen from people that are working for them is all the buses are breaking down or setting themselves on fire :p

The new Arriva buses look like something from space. A futuristic box. I miss the old buses, the cool ones with the staircase and all old-style unpainted steel handrails, etc. That was good times, when 'Iz a young'un back in 'Nam.

Here's the pictures from yesterday, before and after the trip to, around and from York. (And after a dirty burnout before getting new tires). So dirty now, don't know why I bothered! :p :(
