I normally do about 220-240 to reserve. In Spain or Portugal twice I got to 340-350. Same attitude. I remember looking at the fuel gauge puzzled because at 75 km it still hadn't gone down a block. Always thought it must have been a combination of fuel and good temperature.

On the other hand in Spain too the I guess petrol from some station made the bike shake like fuck.

About time, hydroskimming refineries are a bit old hat, are they fitting it out for cracking or just modernising whats there?
Did Phillips sell Whiddy too? I heard they were trying to sell but never heard the sale went through.

Not sure, but what I do know is local crane hire company had their shiney new 750 tonne crane up there last week.
Zenith Energy own Whiddy now. Everything still on the SPM. The tug got a new name and coat of paint though.
