P.S. It has 266k miles on it, but runs very sweetly and is wearing it's miles very well. I won't be the only driver, so it won't be hypermiled everywhere, but let's see how we get on.
That sounds like a very reliable one. My neighbor mentioned he used to have a Skoda Octavia he owned for 10 years. I'm coming over tomorrow to help him install the bumper and g2 axle & gear for his truck. I'll ask the mileage.

Panda as now done over 3600 miles, it's been fine over the summer but at the first
frost the HP Diesel pump started to leak, it leaked last winter but stopped just
before I did something about it, this time I had the pump overhaled at a local
Diesel place 200 it's been dry since and running well mpg seems to have gone up
slightly to but to soon to be sure, my mpg's are high mostly due to were we live
out in the sticks they would soon drop if I lived in a city.
A 100 plus mile trip yesterday produced 78 UK MPG in bad weather keeping up with
normal traffic speeds which I thought good as it was cold wet and windy the onboard
trip is quite good usually within 1 or 2 mpg of being right.
Anyway all the best to you all.
