There’s no better car to cruise long distances in. So comfortable, quiet, plenty of torque for overtaking. Averaged just a touch above 10 liters per 100 km, mainly on cruise control doing 90-110 km/h.

Before hitting the garage last night, I hosed it down properly to remover dirt and salt from the roads.

That’s very impressive. Especially for an 87 model. Most in the U.K. are hidden away for winter.
I have not driven one on snowy roads before, but a lot of people would be fearful because of the weight, and rear wheel drive. Oh and the fear it might dissolve before the end of the journey.

Of course the correct tyres are crucial here.

Spotted today on A448 Redditch / Bromsgrove bypass. Kingfisher Green XJ40 possibly the Gold edition example I've seen from Rookery Close .About 0755hrs this morning. It certainly wasn't hanging around.

One simply has to make good time in a kingfisher car, it's an unwritten rule! Glad to hear another one is about getting some use.
