Right, pick my car up in 20ish hours.... not that I'm excited or anything!

So how many miles do you think I'll do and what will my average MPG be?

You will find that the mpg will be surprisingly good. Average MPH may be something else. Remember to zero both before you set off.

If they let you have it for unlimited mileage then from where you are breakfast at Goodwood on Sunday and a potter along the south coast, then cross country to say Bristol (go a bit south and drive down Cheddar Gorge), up the M5 a bit then cross country (great driving country if you take the A449/A443 over to the A49 and home.
