More towing timber to the house, and driving to work in sub-zero temperatures mostly. Replaced binding brake pads/discs during this tank though. Looking at diesel cars this weekend with a view to a possible tdi engine swap in the spring!

Changed to winter tyres (at max pressure of only 35psi) over the weekend, so expecting worse mpg, but at least with the buckled summer wheels gone there's a few less bad vibrations! CV joints to be done this week, and an engine undertray to fit.

One or more buckled alloys (possibly from running with such high tyre pressures, on such low profile tyres, on such bumpy country roads?) and worn driveshaft joints. Motorway commute to and from work with some cold town driving. Really trying to keep the speed down on the motorway, but seriously looking into a diesel motor now.

Tracked down one of the vibrations to a buckled alloy wheel, and another to both front inner cv joints which are buggered. Can't be helping FE. Also amount of fuel is from memory as I've lost the receipt.

edit: found the receipt and it was more than I thought

Town driving on a cold engine, as I've only started using the engine heater again late this week, and motorway driving at 70mph.

4 miles of urban driving then 44ish miles out to country. Usual test route but didn't have the chance to top off the tank before leaving town so not very useful as a before and after test. Last time I went out this way the car was without kamm back.

Heavily laden, 15-20C air, dry, average speed for whole trip 55-60mph. A few overtakes, and a blast for the final 80 miles at around 75mph to make up time (tired girlfriend and dog, thirsty driver).

Long road trip, heavily laden car, found dodgy front wheel bearing just before trip which I've tightened up as a stop-gap measure. Front wheel alignment may well need checking. Rear wheel alignment all to cock 'cos of the load (semi-trailing arms). Average speed for trip 60-65 mph, some hard overtaking of caravans and trucks. Max speed 80mph, min speed 45mph.

With plastic Kamm back fitted. Tyres also at 43psi now. Some motorway at 65mph, some country roads at between 45-60 mph. Hilly country, engine on coasting down the big ones if steep enough. Very heavy rain on return leg of journey. Car quite heavily loaded with beer, girlfriend and dog.
