Defo a typo and mistake. Surely not possible. He doesn't have consistant history chart either.mud4fun said:The rest of us might as well just give up now, don't think we'll ever beat this 112mpg
Considering the best I've had by driving like a granny is a steady 75mpg over a short 20 mile trip I suspect Vall may have miskeyed his data ;-) ;-)
Oi you, my youngest daughters (aged 8 and 10) already understand the workings of an internal combustion engine and they aren't far off being able to build an engine themselves! By the time they are 18 both of them will have built their own Land Rovers from scratch. Nowt wrong with womens brains or mechanical skills. (might make an exception for my eldest daughter who is blonde though..... )LeachiE said:I do have a woman's brain though! :lol:
LOL, true to a point, my daughters can identify and name most of the parts of a Land Rover because we've spent hours playing games/quizzes where they have to indentify parts from pictures or from me pointing to parts on the Land Rovers. The 8 year old has actually helped me to strip and rebuild an engine and she surprised me in her strength because she could actually rotate the engine on the engine stand which is impressive in itself as well as use the socket wrench to undo most of the bolts holding the engine together even those that were torqued up to quite a high torque. Sadly the only downside to all this is that the 8 year old is also a girly girl in many respects and while she has every intention of building her first Land Rover, she wants to paint it pink!!! AARRRRGGGHHHHHH The 10 year old is more of a tomboy and her first car will be a vintage fire engine if she has her way.LeachiE said:Your daughter's only know what they do because you have taught them! The youngest probably knows more than I do! Maybe I should re-phrase that to 'most women's car brains'! :lol: I don't know that much when it comes to engines, but I have picked up tricks over the years from forums like this - like the time I caught my Corsa D's rear wheel arch on a concrete pillar in a car park - a forum post was a great help in learning how to remove the yellow paint that the pillar shared with my car.
