Got 293 miles on a tank in my GTT - although it did include round trip to Center-parcs mostly motorway driving.

How did we do it? My wife did all the driving :eek:

Shivers down my spine as I think of that :eek:
But then my girlfriend can't drive, so visions of my girlfriend at the wheel of the Skyline trying for maximum fuel economy should send shivers down my spine :D :D :D

I spent a long time finding an insurance company that would not touch the good lady as an additional driver;)

I am thinking about a triple plate clutch for next year when they will allow her on so she cannot drive it comfortably anyway!

I am still amazed by this 293 to a tank thing though - I have just managed 97 on the last tank - admittedly short blasts only.

NIck, 97 thats mad! What are you doing to the beast ? Are you still not letting it get lower than 1/4 full? We went until I couldn't see 'light' between the needle and the empty line. The warning light had been on for about 20 miles!

I had to add Catherine to the insurance as it actually reduced it! She's 11 months older than me. Still don't know why it reduces, but I wasn't going to question it :angel:

Yup

Adding my missus reduced my premium by 56 quid. However I didnt tell her she was added.

Out of the £40 optimax i put in her,some motorway driving and some fun driving i got exactly 195miles then the light came on.(n.b.the car was on the light when i put the £40 in)I think this is pretty??
