Our latest endorsement from a really happy customer

Hi Alan
Just thought I would let you know the engine you built for me is fantastic I have used the Mg quite a bit this year and I have just returned from a 400 mile trip up to Worcester and back and it didnt miss a beat! The other reason for emailing you, would you know what the fuel consumption should be for a newly fitted engine? the carbs were reconditioned + electronic distributor so all new effectively, I drove all 400 miles at around 60mph and I have just worked it out to my surprise 40mpg ! Obviously not complaining just amazed really!
Cheers anyway
