Just over a week to go before the family all drive to Spain to a Eurocamp (the children love it), will be just over 900 miles door to door according to TomTom, stopping half way overnight, second time in this Zafira, Italy last year, now got it down to a fine art, packing, 5th time in a Zafira, so it's 3 bikes on the roof rack along with a half width top box and 3 bikes on the back. Sorted out the DVD with a screen each for the children and I.R. headphones along with 12 new DVD's so we won't her a peep out of them for 2 days, so the wife and I will enjoy the senary.
Even though I drove 40,000 miles this year the wife and I still fight over who drives. Last years drive with all the "stuff" on the roof/back and 6 up only got 32mpg avarage, instead of 45mpg, still, did not hang around and managed 80-85 mph most of the time on their motorways. This year I'm running a DTUK Green Box and will see if that helps with the MPG, as it makes for a lot more plesent drive with the extra BHP and torque.
