Just returned from a booze run to Champagne. 4.8l/100km on the way out (58.8mpg) but only 4.9l/100km (57.6mpg) on the return - fully loaded with almost 250 bottles!

Did the return journey of >500 miles from near Épernay to Chester in one go - if only the UK motorways were as empty as those in France. Must be the tolls.

Diesel in France was only marginally cheaper then here.

Thinking about selling the C4 and getting an estate car - which Citroën don't really make any more since the demise of the C5.

Curious what's happening with their range at moment. Like they have got rid of various segment cars. With no replacements. Wondering if it's because they are working out cars across the multiple brands and adding Vauxhall / Opel has meant it's a bit more difficult. As they want them all to start production at the same time.

It's one of my rare days off today. So think I'm going to spend it cleaning the front drive up and maybe give the cars a quick wash. Looking a bit manky at the moment not had chance to clean mine in weeks.

250 - crikey, what are you up to!

I’m afraid I came to the same conclusion on the estate, not helped in my case by being nervous of another 2.0HDi ‘blue’ which is where we ended up with a Passat which I have to say is actually a lovely car whatever people think. I did consider an older 508 2.0HDi (EU5) but Mrs FB wasn’t keen on an older car

Completion of the house was a couple of days ago (30/04/2018), just glad to be rid of the house now. It's just not to worry about now, was costing me lots while no tenants lived in the house. The money was in my account the same day, happy result all round.

We’re in the process of trying to move house, we have had an asking price offer from a cash buyer and are waiting to get confirmation that the house we are looking to buy is ours
