I would love to have seen the pool emptying, once the announcement came over the Tannoy.

Taking the puddle-jumper for a long run to Somerset tomorrow to give it a good run and to disperse the remaining mayo in the engine.

Poor thing has not had a decent run for months so it's deserving of one...

Mayo already seems to have reduced since the oil change...

I think I'm just going to have to do 2K oil changes in the winter months...

I believe it has Mark, ran like a little clock all the way back... It does a good 65 in second I find before the rev limiter spoils the fun. I'm wondering what the engine red-lines at now....

I've not looked to see if all the Hellmann's has gone from the cambox but I would assume it has by now as I really pushed the little thing hard on the way home and did it in record time - just under three hours.

Fuel economy was excellent too :-D

I love my little C1 :-D

Just checked over the C1 and I find the mayo in the top of the engine is now almost completely gone :-D
