I dont think fuel will be a problem as one has to fill up at Bhubaneshwar, Vizag and Vijaywada en route to Hyderabad and I am sure one can get good quality petrol in these places. Only one thing I am not sure about is whether Silver Bullet will cover reach these places without needing refuelling in between when driven hard. Only the thread starter can confirm that

Carry a ten litre jerry can with good fuel in that humongous boot.
And try real hard to only cruise at 3000 rpm in 5th.
Problem solved

Guys, guys, I'm NOT going to drive the car to Hyd. A diesel powered car maybe...but not the Silver Bullet!!

@ KPZen Freedabaad wale - Thanks sir. But as others have pointed out, I'm shuvD.

@ Cyneverdie - Didn't know about MTM.

@ Nitrous - Sir, cruising @ 5000 on the GQ would be extremely tough!!

@ AKRoy - Dada, I have a modded car... my name is totally stock!

@ Planet - Drive whenever you are free my friend!

@ Bobby - Thanks man.

@ Jay - Thanks buddy. Looks like the video will take some time.

Shuvd,

Wow buddy !! I did not want to come and check this thread out - because I knew what was going to happen !!

Now I need to see that video - get it on fast man.

shuvd , i suppose its time we got the video done. people are itching to find out what that beast can do.

maybe we can plan out a TBHP kolkata meet and get it done so there will be everyone to sort things out.

planet, razor, blackpearl, toiing, sabre, what do you guys say??
