    I like to play a game called the fuel number. That's the average MPH added to the average MPG. The highest number wins!
    It's normally about 50:50 (ish) but which do you trade to get the highest total?
    Best score ever was 132. Best in a limo, 107.
    Best without speed limits is 200 + 4 (mpg!) but that's a little extreme not to mention expensive!:eek:

    A well stocked iPod is all I need, and with wife and kids asleep, there's no arguing over the music!

    On one particularly memorable nightime journey from Newcastle to Plymouth nobody had problems keeping awake. A good game requiring sharp hearing, quick reactions, good brakes and the abilty to open the tailgate in a few moments.

    A game for all the family, it was called "Dog with a gut problem"

    Its fun also to see how long the car will go in a straight line before you have to put your hands back on the wheel ...

    Can be interesting in the inside lane in the 'truck grooves' ;)

    Driving snooker

    Play this with oncoming traffic. I use cars only (no lorries or vans)

    Spot a red one :devil:, score 1 point, see a green:D - +3points (break of 4) and so on until a white car appears (foul and end of break).

    This is good fun with kids who understand the scoring in snooker.

    :devil::crazy::D no brown :rock::eek: no black either.
