Hi all

Hi everybody,

I'm Mambrino, from Spain. I'm mainly interested in MPGuino. My "rides" are a 1996 Peugeot 406 2.0 petrol car and a Suzuki v-strom 650 motorcycle.

The first is a french car, popular in Europe. I've always thought it had an overkill 2.0 litre engine for its duties (and consequently, awful in fuel economy)... until I learned the kind of cars you guys like to drive in the USA Usually I get about 35 mpg (the car doesn't know what is city driving ), better than the official rating.

The motorcycle is very nice to mpg and gets 65. With a full tank one could travel half the size of my country

So greetings to everyone!

Ola mambrino, happy to see an European neighbor

Register your 406 and fill up your logs. If you are living in south of Spain, ie you don't have winter, your MPGuino should make you improve very quick else a grill block will help.

Denis.
