That's the new owner driving away last evening.

And he's a budding eco-driver! When he turned on the ignition, he noticed the fuel economy display was now at 5.0 L/100 km (after his test drive it showed 4.7).

He joked: "I see you took it out for one last rip."

I said, "I guess your challenge is to get it back to where you had it."
