mileage or lack of it

JB,
As you know, I am no expert on big wheels/tyres and difflocks (how do I get
round the Balkans without them, I must be missing something there ;o)
But if you want to check your speed and mileage accurately then borrow a
GPS from a mate. Even the cheapest Garmin model will be able to give you a
very accurate check on your speedo and odometer. Just make sure you take a
trip on a road that preferably goes through open fields with no shadow from
forests or steep hills alongside. A 20 mile round-trip will do it. Only
when you have checked that out should you start worrying about the cause.
I have just been to N.Wales and back this week and my GPS tells me my
maximum speed was 127kph (that's over 80mph). Never knew I was so naughty !

Hi Jon
Thanks for the wisdom about the mileage issue, but you have me confused what
have shadows and trees got to do with mileage. I cant do the GPS thing
because I dont know anyone with a GPS and that is always my problem I feel
so isolated whan I want to know stuff or do things to the cruiser because
there is nobody around here that has a cruiser like mine other than a couple
of mothers doing shopping. in them. Its the story really of the 4x4 scene
over here that if its not broken well I really dont need to know . Thats why
I have to source all my stuff from the UK because the market is not big
enough here to have what I want. The usual motor factors will only stock
what they know they will sell, and this I have been told by them. So ye see
when I go to do anything with the cruiser I am learning but I am also very
nervious because if I pull or move or misplace something I may will not know
waht it is for or where it goes back. Its the usual case of shit what is
this and where does it go. Thats why I am creeping rather than running ,
because all the info I need is there from the really generious guys like
yourself on the list but I then have to process it and fell confident in
doing it, and sometimes this takes time or more questions to fully
understand it. I will tell you that the cruiser has not been in the Toy
garage as much as it would have been last year so progress I think. I
presume that speed you were doing was while you were going up a steep hill,
you are bold and you are now grounded untill after dinner time and no
arguments.
