O.K. Let's see what the Sportage really can do. Complete fill up today although I could only squeeze in 50.8 litres so there must have been a bit left in the tank. Tyre pressures are being adjusted to 40 psi.

Can I get 700 miles?

This may take some time.

Pressure check this morning showed 40 psi all round and a quick calculation indicates just over 60 mpg for 2,700ish miles. Nothing really to complain about and since the previous Sportage was in the high 50s with a similar 40 psi maybe tyre pressures are not critically important. However I have gone up to 45 psi all round to see what difference it makes. Going higher is an option that can be pursued later.

Just noticed a typo!! I’d put 59 for the front should have been 50 :oops:

Great result TE :) - It’ll be interesting to see if you notice any difference, my glides are definitely longer when psi is higher.

Did my longest bike ride ever yesterday - 73.3 miles - took me 4hr 04mins 8-)

No commute for me today - car sharer driving to make up for his business trip last week :)

Finish this Thursday then 17 days holiday :D
