Possibly Paul but for the same style of driving im sure the 2.5 isn't any thirstier. If i sat at 60 all the time it would still be showing an average in the late 60's but traffic and local short trips are bringing it down to the early 40's :)

How can he possibly be a grumpy git with a C6 AND a V6 Xantia... It's like being a kid and living in a sweetshop :-D

Your the only one who can then Will.. 2.5s are known for not being amazing on fuel. Anyway. The HDi appears to do 50 at ANY SPEED, only dropping when it has a trailer and car on the back.

You know Paul, I have never thought of you as a grumpy person. I am rather surprised you see yourself like that...

Paul and I have the same sense of humour, he never fails to make me laugh at something or another, it also helps that we both have a wife with the same name :lol: and most of the same thoughts :roll: :roll:

I don't think he's grumpy either but there again, I make allowances, after all he is a foreigner........ :lol: :lol: :lol:

You're both foreigners as far as I'm concerned. Anyone born and living north of the Watford Gap is...

I've extended the extent of the border somewhat - it used to be anywhere north of Bristol once,,,

No, absolutely not, nor me - always a very cheerful sort of chap really. Steve, I can only think it's you. You and he must grump each other...
