Half your stops won't have petrol at the dockside so you will need to find a way of collecting that sort of volume of fuel!
Polwart: you need to think laterally here about fuel costs and consider the saving in hotel costs when the boy Nathan K does a lap of England/Britain/UK/whatever in less than 24 hours by running at full pelt.

Hi

If it has less then 400 hours we have 4500 cash!

As was said before it depends on the hours and service history just like a car.

Ask them to email the report and post the hours, average revs, last service and any fault numbers on here and then we can give you a better answer.
