Hello all

I have had my engine rebuilt and the charger put on, and have been told some provisional MPG figures, and wonder how they stack up to the rest of you.

Trackday: 5mpg
Urban: 15 ish mpg
Motorway:25ish mpg

hi im john, im a mechanic and ak cobra builder, just replying to your mpg query, those figures seem very good, i imagine you are using a rover v8 to get those figures, however in a car like this, is mpg really worth worrying about, because its always going to be poor by saloon car standards, cheers.

I'd expect you to be doing gallons to the mile with 500 bhp on a track day Rob! Hope your 'support vehicle' is a bowser. hehehehehe.
