72,000mile service done and dusted.

Just had my big service done at Alfatune last week, and my mpg has jumped up from 28 to the gallon to a much more respectable 33.
The engine now sings and whistles like Roger Whittaker in a torture chamber.
The old belt was a tooth or two out apparently, Mangoletsi or if it was done in the 3000 mile gap from the 36,000 mile service 'til I bought it.
Or can they jump a tooth everytime a 4x4 cuts you up?
So a big thank you to all at Alfatune.
Cheers Gus.

We've tried it before and the wife doesn't like it.
But I'll try doing it to the car, but it didn't seem to work for Basil Fawlty.
