I brimmed on the way out in the morning and again at the end of the day at the same place on the way home. Was very surprised to work out I got a shade over 42mpg. Standard truck other than spacers and 195 tyres.


I guess the 42 mpg was on the way to Reading, it was magnetically drawn to the home of BigJimny. It was probably worse on the way back as it had to overcome the gravitational pull :)


:) As it happens I did get a very cheery wave from a Jimny driver as I was heading towards Reading on the A4, (around the Wee Waif/Charvil roundabout) - metallic green soft top, if it was anyone here, thanks!
