Same as our Jag XK 11mpg around town. If you used it in 'sport' and gave it some beans it used to do 2.3mpg Surprised I couldn't pour it in that quick using a bucket!

Won’t be long now now Phil.

If you were in Wales you get a free bus pass at 60 which would help reduce the Bentley running costs thumbsup

Grin I know I put the Bentley in sport and floored it got a reading of 3.2 mpg Floor bloody fast car though when you drive it like that but worrying when you have a full tank of fuel and it says you can do 43 miles on the fuel you have . soon makes you take your foot of the pedal . see we have got it totally wrong in this country .we dont need speed cameras we need 8ltr engines and fuel at £1.50 a ltr, trust me no one would be driving over 60mph anywhere Grin Grin

Noooo Kev dont get me started on the benefits the Welsh and Scots get that the English dont . I realise the downside is you have to live in Wales or Scotland Floor Floor but really how the hell did it happen. What totally remote from the real world government minister thought .oh yes thats the good idea and I am sure it won't piss the English off at all. But still not to worry as I get my huge index linked civil service pension soon so I AM OK jack .
And guess what they have made the bridges free so you can now invade us using your free bus passes.carrying your free medication while phoning your kids at their free uni places . We Wont be there to greet you because we will be doing two jobs working 70hours a week to pay for those things you get for free .

Kev just be honest do I seem bitter and twisted about it ,
Floor Floor Floor

No mate just a bit of fun Grin Grin by the time I get to free bus pass age they will have stopped them. nooo

Wow Surprised

I knew the Hartech rebuild service was good but didnt know you got one of those thrown in. Or do you only get one of those with the 4.0 udgrade.
