    Home now. Left John Barleycorn at 10.00am and got home at 4.00pm including a 1hr stop. Came home M11, M25, M3, A303, M5, A30 and a detour onto A395 due to traffic on A30. Had the top down until we got onto A30 at Exeter when it started to rain. It was a really great drive home, the Zed performed brilliantly as usual and according to the onboard computer returned 31MPG but when I calculated it from my mileage and fuel intake, I made it 28.88MPG.

    Looking forward to the next run out, next weekend at New Forest
