750miles today in the Panda.

Lille to Modena. Taking in Belgium, France, Luxemburg, Switzerland and Italy.


All went smoothly, did 80-85mph most the way and kept that speed up through the alps, took 12.5hours in total which included all stops/traffic etc....my girlfriend is 5 months pregnant so a few more stops than I would have had solo.

The fuel range dial got a bit confused coming through Switzerland with the climbs, at one point within about 5-10minutes the range had changed from 230miles to 630miles.


From the computer about 57mpg, but by the weekend I will have it worked out properly. The average speed on the computer was 62mph for the trip, not help by getting onto the Milan ring road at 5pm.

Now for 6 weeks out here without air-con (Sporting spec) and 35C+ temperatures.

Talking Re: 750miles today in the Panda.

Well done on such a trek

I know well about the lack of aircon (2005 dynamic)

I guess your windows will be down most of the time

My Multijet did Shropshire - Nurburg non-stop. I think I beat you on the mileage in one day

Re: 750miles today in the Panda.

Worked it out at 59mpg, so not bad at all.

Mileage was planned by thinking the missus would need to be stopping more often, these pregnant women have a small tank range.

Having said that I did drive drive up to Vienna (550miles each way) at the weekend for a couple of days offroading (more driving) before flying back to the UK on the monday and driving down so I was trying to be sensible too as I may have be feeling it by then.

The car was more than capable......
