The starting vehicle:
1986 110 with 2.5 liter Petrol engine, leaking fuel tank, and interior and under hood area covered in carpet and other sound deadening material.

Purchased from a UK dealer. It was used by DRA for flight testing of countermeasures equipment. Unique in that it had 44,500 miles and was without front vents presumably to cut down on noise and interference.

So how much the hole kit costs and what is included?:grin
The 1.2 is a little tall, so switched to 1.4 which is the best gearing with 235 85 16 tires.
So with this setup what is you Mpg?
Glad to hear, look like I need to pull the petrol filter ASAP and hope this solves my issues .
Franco did you get any Mpg numbers i wanna just compare yours to Rdavisinva?
