The 195 was in the car to be fair, still naughty though.

The bike has the fuel light come on about 85 miles and normally stinks me £17ish

Smiles per mile are good though (lol)

The way I have to look at is, at 60mph it's 1 minute per mile therefore the true cost is 1 minute of smiling per mile = priceless (lol)

Problem for me is 20% town work which is bad on economy and 80% giving it the berries.

I don't really do any economical driving but then most of its purely pleasure so can't complain really....well not too much anyway (blush)

So far we've done just over 180 miles in the Mitsubishi and only managed to use about a quarter of a tank.

Not bad considering is only a 45 liter tank.

I make that about 80mpg (angel)

The fun I’m guessing you had creating that fuel bill would make it all worth while.

How much are you guys paying per litre? That comes to $128 AUD and I can’t even fit that much fuel in my 80 L tank in my 4WD!

We are paying $1.40-1.50 a litre atm or £0.82
