i'm running a 1600sp with twin dell 32 frds with a 1200 box and rbs.
cruising at 55-60mph i reckon on around 28 mpg. that's with a devon interior and no passengers.
the extra power comes into its own on hills and motorway gradients. taller gears would negate this advantage.

Hello and welcome.
Semaphore's are great, just take care.
There is some reference here for M018, relating to a reflector on a bug.
