Good old hijet power won't let you down.... but maybe your legs and lower back will!

Top effort on the hijet voyage, remember to take some pictures of the hijet in landmark spots.

Got back from Hungary yesterday, could not fault the van. On the run back done 900 miles in one hit only stopping for a pee and a cuppa. I was quite surprised as the seats were more comfortable that we expected them to be. Not done all the working out yet but disappointed at the MPG. Averaged 60/65 MPH, outward trip 7.9 MPL return 8.9 MPL and we had a load on coming back. Had a good laugh with the truckers on the autobann, we were worred that they might get caught in our slipstream. Now looking for a wide load or convoy exceptional sticker.
