    Hi and welcome again, we met at Gaydon the other evening - here's a link to David's 'recipe' for getting the best out of the air con that I think I mentioned, or at least part of it! I find this works well, and if you hit the Econ button it'll turn off the AC whilst still allowing some air flow in the cooler UK (and improve the mpg marginally - but we didn't buy a 4.6 litre V8 for the economy! :-) )

    Getting ONLY cold air from the A/C (two-sixties.co.uk)
    Life's too short to drive boring cars!

    Hello again! Was good to talk with you on Tuesday and see a fellow owner. Thanks for this, I will give it a try at the weekend. It's definitely Smiles per gallon, not miles per gallon! But better on fuel than my old Landrover...

    This thread is now over a month old, so my post may be out-of-date.

    But there is an upside to fewer cars on the market: rarity.

    For most it's not an everyday car, so fuel consumption isn't really an issue.

    Volumes are too low to represent a reliable sample over such short time spans I think, but I get an inkling that you may well be right, from recent sales. We shall see.

    "Watch this space", and of course the Monthly Ins-and-Outs thread at the start of each month.

    The problem is at the moment with what had been and what is happening around the world and I BBC constantly threatening us with a recession a lot of people are keeping there money in the pockets.

    I know a lot of people who have there own business and all are saying that they have never been so busy. Hopefully once this madness in the Ukraine has s
    finished things will start getting back to something like normal.

    Personally I think fuel prices will stay roughly where they are, the only thing that will make them drop is if we stop buying it.
