It's only a vw tiguan. It coped really well. It's auto so I just set the cruise (and went to sleep). Averaged 45mph on the journey back and got 34mpg.

Anyway I win the fuel stakes, Fron Chris the slip to Holyhead is say 30 miles.

I used 140 litres, leastways its all gone now
I thought it was we Scots who'd ttry to water down the fuel to make it last further. Guess I'll have to think of some other way to make my fuel last (other than slowing down).

Must of been a great atmosphere.
it was a brilliant day out with a great crowd, and a good night at Fu's too, what ribbing is all about. I can't believe I made it all the way round, I was only aiming to do the short trip from Ty Calch to Menai and back to Ty Calch, but temptation got the better of me

It was also good to put some faces to names although it's a pity we didn't get to meet you to say thanks. We only got back late last night (370 miles seems verryyyy lloooonnnnggggg when towing a boat) so i've been unable to log on earlier as my iPad got a tad waterlogged on the trip round. I'm sure i could see a fish swimming behind the iPad screen.

I must confess to being the owner of the Ribeye mentioned so I'm pleased you like it.

Thanks again. Peter.
Hi Peter,

nice to meet you and your crew, and have a nose at your rib too if you ever want a return trip, let me know and we can sort a good weekend out round the coasts of Nth wales, there's loads to see and do, too much to mention on HP's thread
