    It may be dirty, but I don’t think that it is possible for an X351 to be “minging”!

    ... and strangely I’ll be on the Rosneath peninsula all next week!

    I notice that the X351 XJ isn't an uncommon sight up in these parts, even before Mac_doctor and I invade

    A 460m stint got it home.

    First proper trip in the XJ. All very uneventful as far as the car is concerned (2 broken drones though ). The convoy consisted of an XJ, and F-Pace and an Insignia... ...the Insignia won by a country mile on the MPG front, and the XJ lost. Badly!

    500 miles got me up here, at an indicated mileage of 41 mpg. I haven't calculated the actuals yet.

    It rains a lot up here.

    That's 6,000 miles that I have done, it is now over 27,000.

    Chris, you're in luck, after some serious hot and way too much sun the mild / gentle Scottish summer rain is back...thankfully

    41mpg isn't too bad, I've seen 54.2mpg but it'd bore the pants off you I swear, probably expect mid 40's though on a nice long run like that, you must have a heavy foot lol.

    Hope you enjoy you wee Scottish visit

    I think that's around what the trip said on my journey up and the journey back. Reality was something like 37mpg on the trip up and back, and around 32mpg whilst knocking about up there.

    At no point was I driving quickly as mostly in convoy with an F-Pace and an Insignia, and one of the party is a nervous traveller.
