Certainly earned it's keep in the snow.

Do you have any future plans for it or are you keeping it as it?

not going to do anything major, i want to get it off the road for a week or two when the ticky is on the road so i can get under sealing it, fix both sun roofs, a window seal leak and a few other bits and bobs :D
its great for towing my trailer too, not fast but it gets there lol.

Its all relative. We only get 12mpg on average when towing with our rangie (4.6 v8 ) :shock:
Nice looking bus by the way crome.

My old Toyota Surf (diesel) only managed 24mpg on a run with me driving like a nun! I've no idea what it was like on my day to day drive but I suspect 'not good' would also apply!

Worth the benefit over a V8 is what I was wondering basically.
