Dont know it if it's appropriate to post this reply here, I like the photo and had fun naming all the cars in the shot, however 1 or 2 elude me such as the Yellow one to right of shot and the green car extreme left middle of shot.
More autumn scenery, from me this time, but on video. It's from a day in early September when we had an intense electric thunderstorm with some 13000 lightning strikes recorded in an hour. There's a shot of a surreal sky that conjures "War Of the Worlds" and I recall half expecting tripod drivers to ride the lightning bolts into the ground and start wiping out humanity. For the rest of it there's noisy wipers, Joni Mitchell in the CD player and rain on the road to my house by Hafrsfjord. Hope it's not too dull :roll:
Oh, the odd wooden structure is from a European boy scout convention. It cost a reported £140 000 to build :?
I did a trip into Sydney last week so as to help a friend work on his Rover. The route is anything but flat comprising a mixture of suburban through to freeway running, with fuel consumption being recorded over a distance of 130 Miles (209km) in each direction.
On the trip in, my Rover returned 27.4 mpg and on the return 23.4 mpg, giving an average consumption of 25.4 mpg for a round 260 Mile (419km).
Apart from moving through the gears after a stop, top gear is used exclusively for the remainder, no changing down for overtaking or for climbing any of the long winding steep hills being necessary. Climbing through the Blue Mountains, the speed limits constantly vary between about 30 and 50mph, which is the maximum limit. The remainder will be run off in the 60 to 70 mph bracket where permissable (2500 to 3000rpm range).
