    Well that's our trip over :( 3200 miles through France, up through Italy and over the stelvio then through Switzerland and finally France again with a bit of Belgium. Car averaged 36.1 mpg over the whole trip which I am more than impressed with. pics to follow if anyone is interested.

    In Sept we are off to Clermont Ferrand to see friends, then on to Bussas for a week. Then up to Vannes to see friends for a few days so should be an interesting round trip.
