Road back to Blighty

After 1700 miles and the grand total of €150 in fuel, we're on our way home. The car's well and truly run in now, and strangly improved in efficiency. It was almost like a switch being thrown. Up to beaune (1200 miles) we're getting 44mpg and averaging around the 75 mph but from there we've averaged over the 50 mpg and speed of 78 mph.

Handling wise the car gets better with each mile we drive, but that's probably more to do with getting used to driving. In the GP you didn't have to think too much about the gear you was in as it jurt 'went' regardless. In Snoopy, get him in the right gear, it's 'like cutting butter!'
