I arrived home safe and sound late Thursday afternoon after driving down from Port Macquarie and calling in to see a friend in Newcastle on the way.
I travelled 3318 kms in the three week trip and the fuel consumption according to the trip computer was 6.8 litres per 100kms ( 41.5mpg) As there was very little city driving most of the time I was driving long legs at 100kmh or faster so the fuel consumption/economy was excellent particularly as the car runs on 95 RON fuel.
Apart from the stressful leg in the storm coming out of St George last Sunday the driving was uneventful.
The past two days have been spent on domestic duties and giving the Mini a really thorough clean inside and out. The front of the car was spattered with dead bugs. At the motel in Warwick last Sunday I saw two honeyeaters picking off and eating the dead bugs. A buffet for birds.
