Hi chaps,
Just done 1000 miles on a holiday in Cornwall with the supercharged TR6..
On the way home (motorway/dual carriageway pretty much all the way). First time I have been able to do an MPG check with everything pretty much write with the car..
Was actually quite impressed.. managed 28 mpg..
Cheers
Tim

28mpg!
Imcan get that out of my non-supercharged car occasionally, so your’s must be very well set up.

I thought TRs were meant to leak outwards!

Guess so. Cruise mixture at 70 is pretty much on 14:1. Could run a tad leaner but don't want to push things too lean.
