    Nah, under £200 - it'll be US gallons, not our more voluminous superior Imperial gallons

    Even so .. that's 120kg of fuel at the back end of the car. Good for endurance, I suppose, at 8mpg!

    That's a lot of fuel behind you. 8mpg x 42 Gallons = 336 miles. I think would be filling it half 168 miles between fill ups. £100 a fill up. That's eight half fills ups too Lemans. £800. I think I did £250 of fuel 2018.

    I might be why its got such low mileage lol

    It is indeed, and the kind of thing I like (would never conside a carb' these days) but just commenting on authenticity which I don't care about but probably would if I was paying top dollar. Luckily I can't aford it!
