Thanks for that info Paul. I was not expecting great things do do not worry, if I can get it up to about 40 to the gallon I will be happy, guess I am not far from that at the moment so I will start grinning. The car is quite high mileage wise but seems to have been well looked after and hides it 100000 miles very well.

I will try running some injector cleaner through the engine when I get the fuel filter done and make sure everything else is looking as it should. It will get a good test from tomorrow as I am heading from Southampton to Norfolk then up to Scotland and back over the next week!

As you say, it seems to be a fairly exclusive motor, I have only ever seen one other on the road since I got mine and that was in Spain last week! I took it to get the wheels balanced yesterday and had to help the fitter drive it into the garage!

Thanks all for the welcome messages!
