Anyhow, price is good, toys all present & correct, and the paperwork implies the same torque and a mere 10 less HP than my current lump. (i think I detect an electronic "gearbox protecting" power cap) - and it weighs as good as the same as my current.
Allegedly runs on air according to the official figures. (if true I can put up with loosing a few gee gees)
Anyone had a hire car or own one and got some real world data?
I have this model, on a run, with cruise control on at sensible speeds, you can achieve 45 - 48 mpg, round town about 25 mpg, combination is about 30 - 35 mpg.
