    Didn't think a berlingos was that bad on fuel, what's the transit like pod? I think my next can will be a transit. Iv got a 1.7 combo at the minute. £20 gets me 130-140 miles

    I did read a few years back that vivaros have a tendancy for the gearbox to bust quite often at a cost of 6k, my memory is a bit foggy on it so check it out, could be completely wrong!

    I see... i always drive fast... and if u drive fast and speed a little your fuel doesnt last long... i could get 60-70 miles out of £10.00 ifi stuck to the speed limit everytime

    I think am going to do this from now :) LOL
