Rover return

Just back from another return journey to Perpignan (Southern France). This time as passenger in a Range Rover 3.0tdi, interesting to compare with same journey in Vel Satis (see post 3rd July). Although quicker driver was not intent on hanging around also we stuck to toll roads, the Range Rover's consumption was 19.6 mpg going and 21.4 for the return journey. Somewhat different to my 37.1 & 35.7 mpg in the VS. Also I found the ride less tiring and more comfortable in the VS. Fortunately I was not paying the fuel bill on this trip!
Currently in tonycanderson's garage:
2003 Renault Vel Satis V6 3.0dci, 2006 Peugeot 1007 Sport & 2006 Citroen C2 1.4HDi
