220 miles return trip for the 350 high roof MTDI, 26 litres, 36 mpg :D , but it does have the 4.63 diff and I was only doing about 55, because I was following some slow bugger in a VW towing a caravan.
The first Mk 6 mechanical TDDI, giving electronics the finger, since April 2013

Perfection is reached, not when there's nothing left to add, but when there's nothing left to remove.

About 250 miles and pretty much a full tank full (68L) between the workshop and billing :roll: did spend about 4 hours in stop/start traffic though.

Total mileage approx 650 miles (home to workshop to billing to workshop to home)
96 N 120 Turbo'd DI SWB Low
96 P 150 TD (100PS EPIC) LWB Hi-Top
97 P 150 76PS Di SWB low ex essex police

About 2.5 actually :lol:

I think I would have been at around 5200kg mark. Hence the killer of stop start traffic!
