I hope you mean numbers of Type 3s, Brian!   If you mean temperature, that's
even hotter than Castle Lissberg, which was nearly 35 deg C (95 deg F)?
I've never had sweat pouring off like that before, apart from when digging
trenches or similar.   It's not as big a problem when driving as you can
open the vent wings on the car and make things more comfortable, but it's
not as much fun for the engine I suspect.  Still, the Variant went well in
Germany, though I was being a bit more cautious with speeds than when at

For a total of almost exactly 1,900 miles (3,000 km), the overall mpg works
out at 36.7 mp(Imp)g, or about 29.4 mp(US)g.
That includes some particularly gentle miles (50 to 55mpg) when travelling
in convoy with the other Brits including a '62 Notch from Wolfsburg to
Usually at highway speeds of around 70 mph I get 34 mp(Imp)g.

A great experience, and I'll get a story sorted out.  I see Neil has passed
on some details already - great to meet up out there.
