Having seen what Admin is driving (pic in gallery) thought I would post what I've been running around in for the last year.

Company Motor - went for the 1.6TDCi (with DPF) - Titanium model - blackened out rear windows as standard :shock: in this colour as well

Hi :)
Nice one.
I get around 55 mph over both urban & motorway.
I have a lead foot.
It is possible to get 65 mph over both.
I have the same car as Admin. (Even the colour is identical.) tonguezzz

I've been told that I'm Green. Duh! Well I like to think that I am Green what with all the solar thermal and water saving projects that I do, but when It comes to cars, I made a bid at auction a few years ago and came home with a BMW 328I, never had so much fun, I do half the MPG as you do bubbles.
Shame on me.

I thought 2 years ago that I would go with a diesel to gain some MPGs and went for the Astra 1.9 turbo diesel (150ps) and I get less MPG than I did with my old 2.2 petrol Vectra (150ps).
I must admit my foot is rather heavy and the Notts constabulary agree, they just sent me a notice to persecute for doing 53 in a 40 limit. I was just thinking of sending my licence off to get the last points off from 4 years ago. One day my foot will learn to read the road signs and I will be OK.
Apparently I can't go on a speed awareness course because I was going too fast. If you go on the speed course it costs more than the £60 but you do not get the points on your licence. To qualify they allow you 10% of the limit plus 6 MPH so I was 3 mph over. It would help too if they didn't hide round corners. :evil:

I currently have the Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCI 130bhp 2002 model still 40,000 on the clock. Pretty quick and plenty of torque. Could probably manage 55mpg i think with the correct driving but since its me i probably do around 50 maybe slightly less and it needs a service. I travel around 300miles a week to work and back. :D :shock:

Nice motor for the needs.

Bought a Renault Scenic 1.9 DCI for the missus and baby a while back. It does the job. Lets leave it at that. :twisted:
