      Drove from Douglas (Northern Cape - about 100km west of Kimberley) to East London (Eastern Cape - between Port Elizabeth and Transkei) today.

      I drove Douglas - Kimberley - Bloemfontein - Aliwal North - Queenstown - East London.

      There was numerous Stop and Go's and plenty roadworks that killed my average speed but none the less, these are my findings as I pulled up at the house.

      Fuel in the tank is Caltex 500ppm + 500ml 2 Stroke Oil.

      This car is awesome!











      As an added extra. Look how clean the oil is 2000km after it's last service!

      Did you use 500ml of two stroke oil to a full tank ?

      I use 2 stroke oil as it clears away carbon deposits (yes, it actually does - I have tested and seen it first hand) and it offers extra lubrication.

      Hi would you recommend putting a bigger turbo or two turbos on a BAC R5 touareg?
