NC, doing what he does best. lol. Only he can get those FE figures out of any car. I won't be surprised if the next update is even better in terms of FE.

All the best guys.

Way to go.

08.45 - we are driving about 45 mins ahead of schedule.

We've reached Navsari. The car is doing well, however I fear we have overloaded the electrical system.

I have 2 lighter sockets running the Navi and the ipod dock. Both have stopped working.

We will fix this at Navsari itself.

Sam have a good drive..

FE is good, am keen to know how "Nano" copes with bad roads..

BTW other day got a chance have a close look at a fleet of Nano's which were parked at "Concorde" and i must say was pretty pleased with the fit and finish...

The fuel gauge is at half tank - we shall update the FE after re-fuel.
First and foremost, Sam & NC good luck with the trip. I am sure you guys will have a lot of fun.

Hello from the outskirts of navsari.

Its 10.45 am. We stopped at Navsari. Fuses are fixed. We stayed for longer than planned and now are completely behind schedule.

Outside, it is boiling hot. I'm guessing 40degs. Gautam is not letting me drive. So far I've only driven for an hour.

We have an ice box full of chocolates, water, pepsi and home made sandwiches and cake. The road is as smooth as a baby's bottom.

Whats with the electricals that 2 small devices hardly pulling any significant power blowing off fuses.

Sam - is the 'decent enough ICE' proving too much. I hope u have spare fuses.

Good to hear the roads are getting better
