Hello

Hello from Finland, I joined this site to try and improve my FE. Petrol/GAS is 1.60 a litre here, so anything and everything I can do to make my old Volvo less thirsty the better.

Also I am very interested to see now that I am logging if studded winter tyres make a difference and driving on ice/snow make a difference (rolling resistance will be much lower on ice I imagine!)

Some really great info on the site.
