Was the Rover 3500 an S ? There is a guy on our road who still runs a C15 for work (alongside a '14 plate M5 for fun).

We do the J5 M74 thing too when coming back from the civlised world to our colony in Embra, J5 then the A725 and the M8 - which is always full in the 'overtaking' lane and empty to the left
it was indeed an S- lovely old thing. the c15 was just so "Bof" it hurt

What do you think your thirst was on that trip ? 30 would be about 23 litres or roughly 4.5 Gallons ? I've had a best instrument MPG of 39 and a best tank to tank of 37, but I don't do 60
The Polo did 53.86 mpg on the round trip, the Daimler pitched in at approx 27mpg according to the trip computer- not too shabby for being 2x the size of the polo (4Litre vs 1.9, and 1800kg vs 950ish)

I'll have to drag Hermann over to the unit if you still have it - do you have a lift ?

I'm likely to be keeping him for various reasons (must update his thread) and would like to check for rot and perhaps apply some appropriate lotions and creams - aka POR and/or Waxoyl.
alas nae lift at the unit-and now I'm solely out west (both work and habitation) I'm rarely over- it just houses all my guff. A clear out is needed
