I think the Vel Satis has the nicest interior - infact I think it has the interior that the avantime should have had!

I also wish my A'time had the same fuel economy as your Vel Satissssss!

Yeh I agree the interior is great, very comfortable, ideal for what I am using it for now.

As for the economy, yeh better than the petrol v6 I am ever thought of LPGing it? I had a V8 discovery converted about 6 years ago, paid for itself in less than 12 months and I swear it ran better on LPG than it ever did on petrol!

I get between 35 and 38mpg with mine, 70/30 motorway/rural, although the M4's not exactly free flowing. It's a 2.2 manual and I tend to cane it rather than drive for economy. I've done 28,000 miles in 15 months - very comfortable, and apart from tyres, pretty economical.
