Reversed it out of the garage, washed it, took photos of it next to it's older brother (my new addition to the 'fleet') and put it back in the garage again.

Reducing my Golf count by the week....

I filled my car up the other day, reset the trip and drove home as economically as I could, following the lorries for just over 7 miles and averaged 94.6mpg  :laugh:

Needless to say, the next time I started to drive, that average plummeted, but now, 300 miles on and the average since filling up is 62.1mpg.  :smiley:

I'm lucky to get over 17mpg around town and 25mpg on the motorway! :sad:

If I coax it I can eek out a 30 on the motorway, but that would be at 60mph and would annoy me to drive sooooooo slowly! :laugh: lifetime average is 18.2!! :shocked:

Woken up in terror as I was dreaming that the gti was missing one of its tires  :laugh: Went out to check; everything in place.  F***ing weird!!!

Talking of dreams - couple of nights ago I dreamt that all the seats in the car had changed into something resembling aeroplane seats.  Clearly spending too much time thinking about cars and holidays  :wink:


Need to see photographic evidence of you with wash mitt and snow foam lance in hand..........or we won't believe it ever happened  :laugh:
[/quote photographic evidence to follow booth11 I think your really a copper always wanting evidence   :wink:
