No didn't fall asleep, I do like a slow cruise from time to time, gives me time to think before the chaos at the office.

Yep, pretty spot on 2000rpm @ 80mph, she is geared for economy in the higher gears. Shame really as it would be far more entertaining to have a closer ratio box.

Ooops I send you a PM asking so ignore it Gordon.

2000 RPM still seems just over the odds to me, but it only has a 7th gear so that explains it. Thanks for the info, and the economy seems really acceptable for this car.
I will probably order one for september time subject to the deal I can get.
