The Saab still had 1/4 tank of French fuel left in it, the last fill-up from the Ring trip. Shows how much I have been driving it since then.

Wanted to get a fresh tank of V-Power, but since Shell have closed all the convenient garages, and since there is nothing on the way between here and Llandow, I took a 30 mile round trip to fill up. Apart from a slight backfire on starting the car ran fine, filled up. 31.6 mpg on the computer, but 28.8 in reality.

Did a few accelerations runs on the way back, car is pulling well, boosting nicely and everything feels ok.

Weather forecast is a bit damp for Saturday, so no plans to change tyres yet, will go down on full tread tyres, and if it is dry change the wheels there.
