  1. Hi there, I frequently do a 700 mile trip to france and having had both mk1 and now 2 diesels I've found the mk2 readout to be pretty accurate and consistant providing you don't keep resetting it during a trip. the mk1 readout would go up or down depending on the instantaneous consumption reading whereas the mk2 readout never increases no matter how economically you drive it just knocks the miles off slower ( ie 1 mile knocked off when in reality 1.3 miles have been covered.) I find on these trips I usually average 54 to 59mpg from the 1.8 tdci depending on load with a worst of 49.9 very heavily loaded with tools, ladders on the roof and bikes on the back.
  2. Hi i'm new here but i think there maybe a little confusion regarding the mot test here, it's true that when you go for an mot one month before your old one expires if the car passes the new certificate is dated from the expiry date of the old one, however this does not apply to a cars first ever mot which will be dated as the date the car actually passes the test even if the car is presented for test one month before the car is three years old. sorry if this seems a bit off for a first post folks, no offence intended but i learned this the hard way and would prefer to pass the info on to others rather than anyone else make the same mistake.
