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!
