That is impressive - on a run and driving at 80 and not being a knob I "can" get 27mpg I do not do it often.

This keeps getting better and better....

Filled up with V-Power yesterday, after 145 miles. £41 was the bill. 149.9 was the pump price, so in went 27 litres (all these figures are roughly rounded up or down and I know maths isn't my strong suit).

27 litres is 5.9 gallons. This is 24.5 mpg, with trips to the shops, rush-hour motorway traffic, a few blasts and just general driving.

That's insane! Happy, happy, happy. smile

Lee, that was normal map, with one tunnel run.... Paul, I'm guessing it's the low weight/massive power that means it can just run on tickover!

Eh? I've never been to Brighton Speed Trials Dom.

Try to get your facts right for once... or is this more 'banter'?

When? Dean - any ideas? The only time we've been close with our cars was The Supercar Event - any other time we've missed each other.

Dom, I'm all for you coming back on to these forums, you have been missed - but seriously.

Either get your facts right, or stop drinking. smile

No, drove it so hard I broke it! biggrin (100A fuse).

It was also Dean (who as a better driver than me), showed me a much better way through the last corner (I was trying to carry far too much entry speed), and how great R888 tyres are (my 4 year and 5 trackday old rubber was...errr..... the second weakest link in the chain - without a shadow of doubt I was/am the weakest link!).

Final excuse was it hadn't been remapped, and that was 500-700 miles of the running in process.... Not bad for a freshly rebuilt engine, no?

Dean and I were on track together once, and on launch and low down, he got a few yards, on the top end I more than pulled them back. The reason he went round faster than me is that he is a better driver, and I'm not afraid to say that. As for launch, have a look here... Dean goes at 22 sec, I go around 30. A few cars in between us. The Supercar Event

So then chap - now you know the facts, what were you chirping on about Brighton? ears

Oh, by the way Dom, pop at me all you want. Just don't strop off like last time and send a blank email and expect sympathy when you get it back.

But by all means banter you can actually be funny.... sometimes! biggrin

But just like you don't like people saying anything negative about you and your company, how about we do the same for others?

On the modified speed six thread it would be really good to see what you have done with your 5.0 - it sounds amazing, and I love the fact that you have done it. Pushing the boundaries - it's the only way that we can keep the brand we love alive. I do say at the top it's not a willy waving competition, and I can only reiterate that - I think I will actually be happier with someone else taking the mantle away from me of having the most powerful S6. Seriously - I didn't do it to get that, and I don't really want it. Maybe if Pascals can get finished, or you wind up your monster 5.0... smile

How about it then? hippy

It’s all a bit off fun for sure ive taken a lot more shyte of Piston Heads in the past but hey that’s life, Pascals will be 4th on the ranking lol.

Not really done a great deal with the 5 ltr this year just been working on the Knock MBE which works really well, not as many gadgets as Syvecs though!

I'll be building a new spec 5ltr over the winter to reduce piston speed as well as bigger cams, bored out intakes with larger butterflies and a lot more compression, bigger exhaust valves larger exhaust, lets see if I can achieve big HP @ higher revs " boom" smile

Hope my spelling correct this time frown

But it's hardly surprising when most of the time you are only here to bad mouth other companies via snide remarks and advertise your products. wink

While flouncing off occasionally saying you'll never return, like a 5 year old.

So stop whinging, if that's the case. wink

And 'not bovered' people tend not to need to make snide remarks regarding competitors. biggrin

I know PH is a good source of information on what other companies are doing and whether it's worth trying to copy but I'm sure your business is more than good enough to cope.
