Not known for my computer skills guys..........I have my tech support staff (me) working on it.
Hey Stumpy sometimes i send the pics to myself to resize them if i dont go through Pbucket . I just save them before i send , then past to another folder . Then use the browse section to upload on the post .Otherwise p/b is better for multple pics.
Try this time......if it don't work - I give up ...........
No need to give up Stumpy you done well mate. hey that looks awesome to say the least . All good now for the east meet and greet next year hey . Interesting to see how your fuel goes mate . So where and whom did you buy it from .,Looks like a north brissie guys make but i suppose they all look simular Cheers Ray
Fuel consumption is a bit of a mystery. Im taking it for a blast out to Kilcoy and back today with a full load so I can get an idea of how much I'll use. I normally get around 250k's to a tank and I'm guessing this will drop back to around the 200-210 mark - depends how much grissle I give it !
Bought it from a guy down the coast - very happy so far - early days though !
750 Shadow Fuel consumption - towing. Punching into a fairly stiff breeze out and back, trailer loaded, driver only cruising at 90-100k's - a few hills but mostly highway running worked out to be a little under 6lt/100 k's. Should be able to get around 220k's before reaching for the reserve tank tap.
Noticed a little bit of a drop in grunt on the hills and from a standing start........overall, pretty surprised [good surprised] with the performance and handling.
