Just a few pictures from the 2015 Europe trip.

We stayed in a wide selection of hotels which were all very different and very good. :th:
We covered about 2153 miles :)
All of the cars had modified engines

My car was probably the most un-economic car. :rolleyes:
MR2 V6 3000cc, Supercharged, with water/methanol injection
Car maximum occupancy/maximum load
I used 490L (89.89 Imperial gallons) of petrol + about 8 L methanol
other cars used nearer 400 L

Cost of petrol, not dissimilar to UK
98 Octane (easy available in France, 100 available in Italy)
Road tolls in the region of £80/£100
Hotel accommodation average of £95 per night (for two people), hotels of a good standard (say £50 per person)
Food and drinks £70 to £90 a day for two people.(Say £40 per person)

Total cost of trip £1800 to £2100 based on two people in a car, including cross-channel train (say £950 per person)

Yep.

To the right of the pylons and emerging from behind the rock promontory. Passo di Stelvio.

Looks like it was a great trip. :th:

You posted the route, but never did send me the info I asked for about the hotels etc. :sad:
If you're not living life on the edge, you're taking up too much room!
