Eventually I have a Patrol that I have always thought possible !!! After a long and interesting discussion with Tinus ,he finally convinced me to make the trip from the Natal Midlands to see Graham the GURU.The differnce in Savuti is amazing she now has the power and economy I thought should have been there when I got her.What a pleasure to drive very little throttle input required brilliant
The economy has increase from around 5 km/l to over 5.7 km/l .We are going to Umfolozi for 4 days and will see how she performs.I will be looking forward to our trip to the Bots side of the Kalahari for 3 weeks in April to compare with the Kafue trip done in September.We have to cover nearly 1000kms so it will be interseting to see what she does.
Once again a very big thank you to Tinus and Graham,he is a master
