I had my Skyline for 6 months and had to sell it to buy a computer so i could talk about how great it was. The thing is that it was costing me a fortune in petrol (about 200 miles on a tank) and it went through tyres like a wino in Elly's! So, the question is... Was i the only person to drive my Skyline every day or has everybody got second Mortgages?

Thats the problem though. If you've got one, it seems a shame not to use it! That and the fact the wife always wanted to borrow it! I was sorry to see it go, but so much healthier in the bank balance already!

I dont find its all that expensive to run, just not as good with motion potion as the renault.

Its miles more fun though :)

Company white van every day. Bought Her indoors a new Smart car, lets me play as and when. Took it to Le Mans, have to go to Wales in it quite often.
Guess the truth is you don't buy a motor like that if you are worried about MPG.
I would be very suprised if there are many on here who have even bothered to do the sums, seems like you sort of know how far a tank full will get you.:rolleyes:

I used mine everyday while I had it. Then again having ridden bikes every day for several years and got used to buying new tyres every 3,000 miles the skyline seemed cheap to run.

yep use mine for the daily work run. Get about 200-220miles out of a tank, not bad seeing as the Mondeo used to give about 260/70 to the tank!!!

Q!

why are you discussing fuel economy when you bought it for fun and only fun? its hardly a like for like comparison, I have more than one car and to be fair the others are nice enough motors but lets face it dull as f*ck to drive so i have them for emergencies and those regular "service" intervals

I bought mine for fun too.

As I use it every day, and its the only car i have its nice to know how quickly your burning up the tank. If i had a second car then it wouldn't matter.

How on earth did you manage that Eddie?? :confused: I cant squeeze more than 280ish out of a whole tank at best, less if I drive like I want to... :D
