Finally – just for the statistically minded…….

Distance covered on The Ghan train = 2989 kms or 1857 miles.

Distance driven = 7884 kms or 4899 miles

Fuel used = 583 litres or 128 imperial gallons

Fuel consumption was 7.4 ltrs per 100 kilometres or 38.3 miles per imperial gallon

The incredibly good fuel consumption is mainly due to Honda engineering. Although it is a 3.5 ltr V6 the electronics can shut up to 3 of the cylinders when you are cruising, thereby minimising fuel consumption.

The final statistic covers the profit/(loss) on the Pokies and the nett result was ($28). Just goes to show you cannot win them all.

The blog ends here, see you in 2010 perhaps when we embark on The Dog and Rocket Tour to the USA.
