That all i have to say is WAW what a car.
I have just returned from touring France in the car.
from Calais,Normandy, Brittany,and then down to the south France and then back to Paris and then
home all in 16 days.

I was a bit sceptical in driving that mileage in a small engine car.
but we where 3 including myself with the boot full and it chugged away at 75-80 mph all day.
I worked out mpg at around the 60 mark, which was great, down side spent 180 in tolls for the motorways.
but we did do over 2900 miles round trip anti clockwise of France.

weather was 30-36c down the south and still quite warm up till Calais.
mileage on the car is now hitting 45k on a 04 plate car.
it did not use any water or oil.
car did feel better in pulling as the French don't have ultra low sulphur fuel and at 1.29 euro a Lt it was cheeper.

so good on ya Henry Ford.
