    Yes sorry to hear that Andrew :(

    Last night, 2UP, accident not far from work so tried a completely different way a colleague had told me about which took me to the motorway but joined it one junction further North. I'll call it detour #6. It was fairly hilly but not too bad for traffic, 55°F, 6mph headwind E:
    41.6 / 22.7

    Great run this morning, no detours, 52°F, 4mph head/crosswind SW:
    50.1 / 22.5 - First calculated 50+ commute this week

    Tank down 0.1 at 47.7 (FCD 50.3) / 589.2 / Range 40 . Guess gauge F____|___«E . UG down 0.1 at 47.8 / DTE56

    LFL @ 567 miles

    Need to fill up later....
  2. Left it here because I'll still be here a couple nights a week until it sells. Need some fluids
