We should run a competition to see who can get the worst fuel economy sir !

A Japanese 3.7l V6 vs an American 5.0l V8?

Lol!

Think you've lost that competition before Dad runs out of fuel trying to get to the Start line!

Hmmm.....I reckon with a breeze block placed on the funny pedal the Nissan would run through a whole tankful in neutral at 7500rpm quite happily whilst Painless wept in a corner whereas the V8 would - probably - do something similar but only at much more economical revs.

When I was a student I had a 2 ltr. Cortina.  My mate (not a student) had a 3.5 Rover SDI.   His V8 was faster and more economical than my Ford.

In a fit of spur of the moment,  weather- induced boredom we decided to let the train take the strain and spend a couple of nights in central London wandering around doing the touristy thing.

I was astonished by how much the skyline has changed in the fifteen years since I last had the opportunity to walk over Tower Bridge.:pic:

Possibly Swep!:thumbsu:

I'm more reminded of holidays in Greece when a look over the rooftops would reveal loads of  'unfinished' buildings with a few rods sticking out from concrete roofs.  Wasn't it a local tax dodge or something?

Then go out, needlessly cut down some trees, club a few baby seals and eat some tuna friendly dolphin ??

Sounds like any Sunday afternoon in America!

Well chuffed ?

It wasn't.  It was urghhhhhhh.........

Hurrah!  Something has obviously gone wrong for whoever organises the weather here and they appear to have run out of water to tip over us.

'twixt Holne and Hexworthy this afternoon.

Low tide this morning.  Storm 'Ciara' is winding itself up for a big blow later today which will correspond with today's high tide.

Could be interesting:startle:.
