How do you know the 'true' mileage when running a 3.9 final drive ?

Another good point, I have a sat nav that records mileage,
I believe most don't though, or am I wrong again :lol:

All the cycle and walking ones seem to.

My car burnt an awful lot of calories when I used my bike one on the way to work, because my Morris speedo to Toyota Gearbox cable has broke. :D

40 mpg is indeed impressive. I recently fitted a 3.9:1 Midget diff to my 1275cc Midget-engined Traveller (with 4-speed gearbox) and it seems to average a little over 30 mpg, mind you, that's on regular shortish trips of 7 miles each way or so - no doubt, it would fare better on a long run.

Rather poor compared to my little 1998 Fiat Cinquecento though (with 899cc engine with fuel injection), which will average 70 mpg on similar trips! :shock:
