    I wish I could get that far on a tank of optimax in my scoot :shock:

    I get 260-280 from brimmed to the fuel light coming on
    Thats on a motorway at a steady 75-80 without going into the zone

    If you budget for 3 full tank fulls of GoGo juice you'll have have enough to get there and back with enough for the RR and the associated traveling in between.

    What does your car do to a tenner?

    geez you must be heavy on the go pedal, i get 100 miles easy, but i agree that on the motorway it sips juice nicely

    We drove down from North Wales for Trax and put ten quids worth in when we got there (to top up the tank which was full when we set off) and hammered it all the way back, probably put 15 quids worth in to fill the tank again for work that week
