    2004 Ford Focus TDCI. Smoke machine, completely dead DMF, but goes like stink. Not standard mapping - it drinks fuel too!

    Well .. as it's going again ..

    Me, I'm kinda stuck with a 2000 Land Rover Discovery 2 TD5 running at about 25mpg .. YOWCH!! Living up a big hill is very lovely and all that, but the winters I kinda need the 4x4 and don't have the to run 2 cars sadly .. lol .. else I'd still be driving around my 2002 Astra Bertone 2.2l Convertible .. as it is, that's sat on my drive waiting to be sold ..

    Good effort. Here is mine:

    And occasionally I get to drive the missuses:

    Though while I did run it every day for 5 years, I then went modern and now I run a cheap and cheerful Mondeo 2.0l TDCI. I've put 20k on it since May and it's doing okay so far.

    Nice 1! Occasionally i get to drive my parents left hand drive mexican import bright orange bug, set up for drag racing it's awesome. Also had to drive the bay window as a wedding vehicle for my parents when it was falling apart, had to do about 3 miles @ 20mph as it wouldn't go into third or fourth

    I too have a Saab....9.5 Vector Estate....

    Man, I love this car!!! Cruise control for long journeys, air-con for ruining your fuel consumption, and electric everything! 6 disc CD player in the boot, and a tow-bar for the Mother's caravan!

    Ooopps! That last bit makes it sound like I live with my Mum!!! (It's not true, obviously, but since my Dad died, I tow her van around!)

    At the moment I have a Almera Tino, it's great, massive boot, great for the kids but not my style, I'm hoping to get a BMW again in 2 years once I've saved enough.

    I'm about to get (i've bought it but i don't have room on the drive yet) a 1994 200tdi van as a restoration project, it's complete and working but the chassis could give way at any given moment! It's still more economical than the Iveco though.

    First skill you learn as a LR owner is welding.... and lots of it!
    Still, they're a damn good bus if you can put in the maintenance hours.
    I've got some 220tdi bits if you require them - rear wiper motor etc.

    Jaguar X-Type 2.0. Thirsty!

    That's about all I can say about it really except that it is probably the most comfortable car I've driven.

    Want to get an XF Diesel for the economy
