Well the maths work out but I bet your heart will be racing the whole journey! You have to let us know if you make it!

Well, I've got to be in work for 8:30, there are a couple of stations on the way if I get scared, but Morrisons is who I'm aiming for.

CF83 3EE - NP10 9SA is my planned journey 9.2 miles. Shorter than I thought.

Edited again, via Bassaleg, the route over the mountain is closed. 12 mile . . . . lol

as low as this? reset at half a tank BUT i put £15 in a few days ago but the needle sticks and never moved when i did and im pretty sure it just went down regardless of this, hence me risking driving with the light on!

LOL he even had it in snow mode to try and complete the journey. :lol:

I normally just restrict myself to a trip to work and back (about 25mls in total) once the light comes on.

I use the snow mode all the time. I know the benefits are only around 2MPG, but around town it dulls the throttle so I 'accidentally' rev less. But if you see my fuelly, I'm regularily getting 450 miles out of the tank.

500 + miles two weeks in a row. I won't do it next week, I've got no long drives left. But that last run was a worry. Proof again, at least with my driving style, that I have 50 miles of driving left once the low fuel light comes on.

With the cost of petrol these days, I think we all need to start driving like LS drivers. Calm relaxed, but knowing we have the power if we want to use it . . BUT DON'T USE IT . . Lol.

I use snow mode around town all the time. its not like you need the power or can even enjoy it on urban roads (without looking like a idiot) it gives a much smoother drive at low speeds and like you said keeps the revs low making a very relaxing a quiet drive. I had a blast in mine with ECT PWR on the bypass a few days ago tho, first time in months hehe got to be done now and again

Good on ya Ray. And proof again that calm driving can increase you fuel economy. How are you enjoying the Saab?

Cheers Stuart.

Saab is fine now. Had some niggles but they're sorted.

Kids love it with the top down. I had one before but that was a 900 vert (same shape) Bit dated compared to my last few cars even though it's on a 51 plate but the electric hydraulic roof is always cool. It is ridiculously fast though but can drop down to 16MPG when trashed.

Love to go back to a big comfy all toys estate car though..... Best do some saving up
