(Cough) Yes, Rich is right, its the Touring or "Gnome-Mobile". Progressively faster runs but could really have used an LSD and 6MT to quicken the response in the corners- looking into the swap sometime soon I hope (Jay?).
P.S. My fronts were almost gone which provided some drama during lapping, my tire shredded itself on hwy 115 on the way home.
Well, it went out with a bang, just in time for the winter swap.

That said, I got off my butt and finished the article on my blog.

My bad, I had dumped wagons stuck in my head from something I read earlier, I'll be sure to refer to it as a touring.

I already had an e30 black chopped ready to weld for a trailer last year but had no time and no more space so I sent it to the wreckers. In a different time I would do this but just no time for now.......

Plus I was enjoying great fuel mileage........not so much now. 450km/tank is unacceptable. I was doing 650-700km/tank prior to it springing a leak.

Do you fill up early? I let it go until I do about 30 to 40km on the low fuel light and then I put 57 ish litres in.

I kinda cheat.. From a full tank I drive till about half, then fillup again. Then just do L/km based on how much was filled and the trip..

So how many l/100km do you do then? If you take my average of 57 litres bringing me 650 km then that's 8.7 which is not exactly amazing by todays standards.

I'm in the same boat. After I took my car out of storage at the start of the year the gas tank had a hole in the top. As a result my fuel mileage went down considerably as well, partly because of spillage in hard cornering, but mostly because the evaporated gas vapour is always escaping from the tank. I'm planning on fixing it in the spring though.

^^you store your car? What do you drive in the winter? Yeah I hear you about the vapour, it smells like a gas station everywhere I go now.
