Thumbs Up France road Trip

Just completed a 2,000 mile round trip to French Alps (Lancaster to Annecy) and back in my Alfa GTD. Never missed a beat. No oil or water used. Returned 55 MPG on motorways. Just odd creak from front suspension? Absolutely fantastic. C'ant say the same for the weather!

Glad you had a good trip. I did a 2500 mile round trip in my GT 3.2 to the south coast of France (Marseillan) via the Loire Valley back in August. I only got around half of your mpg (26.7) but still loved every minute....

Drove my old 156 JTS down to the French Alps via a friends place in Switzerland 3 years ago and visited Annecy - lovely place!

Nothing like a road trip, have done a run to Italy and back the last two years, and booked to do it again next year.

The JTD's are perfect for those long runs, great cruising cars.
