If you had filled up whenever you saw fuel, what range would be required?
If you want to haul ass, you gotta mix gas.

I get about 450 to 500 km per tank , but depending on how aggressive you are on the throttle./quote]

Your RR really makes me miss Nam, lekker pix. 

But I think you and the Himba babe are withholding some important info from us.  Why 2 plates?  ??? :biggrin:

Ja, dink ook dit was Himba se kind,

Mens kan duidelik sien uit die een bord is met 'n vurk ge eet en die ander een met die hand, kyk na die vee merke soos wat die laaste sous op gevee was met die hand. :lol8: :lol8:
