Respected Sir, I have driven from Mumbai to Mount Abu in exactly 11 hrs a distance of about 1020kms that too all alone without any one else with me.
I started from versova at 3.45am in my 1987 gypsy,I had done full tank of petrol one night earlier. Actually I wanted to start at 6.00am but woke up wide awake at 3.00am told my wife to make a strong tea and said goodbyeto her.
First forceful stop at vapi due to traffic jam at 6.00am saw tourist buses of Ahmedadbad stranded in the traffic.Buses which started one night earlier fro mumbai for Ahmedabad and by this time they should have been near to Anand.

I engaged gypsy in 4WD and took extream left kutcha road and covered about 22kms in that way without any problem and then saw that Iwas first one to come out of that dammn jam, reason of the jam was a small accident among two trucks and ADIBAJI between them.
Next halt was Baroda had food and top up of petrol tank.
Finally next halt at ABU ROAD bypassing Ahmedabad Sarkhej etc.Ijust went to the hotel I used to regularly stay when ever I was going to Abu Road by train, took bath and sat down for a heavy meal of chicken and Kababs and makhni daal, along with beer as a compony , called home I HAVE REACHED.Best part I was not at all tired ,infact next day morning I was at my work site to attend to a meeting,where others were not present thinking I will come late. Thanks to my Gypsy and its performance.

Now a sad part of the story I had to sell her since I got my New Tata Sumo and as usual there was parking space problem in my bld.

1020 Kms in 11 hours, that means you had an average speed of 92 Kmph!!! How the hell that's possible? What is the maximum speed attainable in a Gypsy? I can't stomach this. As I understand, Gypsy has top speed calibration of 140 kmph on the speedo, but the car actually goes to a mx speed of about 115 Kmph. You have to travel non stop at around this speed to achieve an average of 92 kmph, right?
