Smile 12.5 mpg visually

This is what 12.5 mpg looks like!

This is my Stewarton run from yesterday. I normally do it in the other direction. Must be shorter this way though, as it didn't take as long.

Nice Blue Sky, Quite "B" Road and a SLK AMG 55 -What isn't there to like

PS: I'm sure the MPG was either a computer glitch, or the fact that the road was all up hill....???

I use a GoPro 4 Stella. I have it set to wide angle to take in more of the scenery. I mount it centrally on the windscreen in front of the rear view mirror. This location also produces a better sound track, as there is less wind noise. To give an increased sense of speed I used to place it on the bonnet above the star, but the wind noise was really bad.

No air, just light. Does look like it though. Maybe when I get to know the road better!
