I've just done 3200 miles across Europe, at an average speed of 55mph, which is pretty good going I think!
One day across Germany the average was over 70.

But I believe generally the average over a tank is somewhere around 30.

Two questions, if you live in Sheffield, sylvan capital of the northern regions, why would you want to go anywhere else, and two, what's a Sheffield Man doing supporting a London football club? It might say Dorset on my profile, but it says Sheffield on my birth certificate, tha knows. And another thing, you might complain about traffic congestion in Yorkshire's fair city, but you don't know the meaning of the term until you reach the South Coast, ask anyone who's been.

1st of all, Yes sheffield has alot of tress but it is not generally wooded. It may be next door to the peaks but after all it is proposed to be englands 5th largest city. I love sheffield
2nd...Yes it may say Sheffield on my profile but it says London on my birth certificate.
3rd... Its not just the congestion (which I am fully aware that every major city has) its the awfull speed humps that are sprouting up with snow caps on top of them....
All i'm asking for is a comparison.. not a debate

So whots your average speed??????

maz24 you must be very brave living in Sheffield and supporting the team that relegated Sheffield Utd to the Championship. :eek:

Not that bother me at all, having parents who were both born a few miles from UP.

Come on you Irons :thumbs: :thumbs:

p.s To answer your original question the computer is now recording 3900 miles average of 39 mph. I regularly travel 150 motorway miles @ 65 + mph (and 60+ mpg).

My daily work drive is 20 miles down a dead straight road...

And since I'm usually working nights and there's nothing about, that means I tend to average 70... ish... ;)
