    Compared to an equivalent vehicle I find mine pretty economical. I'm averaging about 30 mpg. Compared to my Oppo's disco it's positively frugal.

  5. I went for the XTrail T-Spec as the PF was a bit big for my needs. Electric everything and a comfy ride. Might go for a PF when it's time for a change.

  7. lol cheers lads , apologies for the newbie question.
    The recurring answer seems to be pass p-coy (well) and if you think you ve more left in the tank and still game then give it a crack .. sound about right ?
  8. Ideally we need to know your capbadge first, so that we can advise on courses (ones that you are eligable for)

  12. There's a DIN that is available that has all the info you require. The chap on the recruiting desk will answer your questions as honestly as he can if you're still after some answers.
