Ok so ive had a bit of time to go through my log book and work a few things out. I dont know if anyone else had done the same but here goes. Trip to Eden: Left Tuesday, stayed at Paul and Lynns tuesday night, left reedy creek 7am wednesday arrived bonnie Hills pm wednesday, depart 730 am arrive at Nowra pm thursday, 730am friday depart Nowra arrive at Eden Friday pm. 1673kms from home to Eden via the Gold coast (reedy creek meetup point) 200.51L of fuel Average speed 85-90 kph Fuel cost $267.15 Trip from Eden: Left eden Monday arrived newcastle tuesday pm. stayed at Newcastle 2 nights, left Newcastle 8am thursday morning, arrived at Lismore 430pm thursday, overnight stay at protestors falls, depart am friday Home midday Friday. 1593 kms from eden caravan park to home, (saved 80km by crossing behind beaudesert instead of going up to coast and then inland) 194.49L of fuel Average speed 95-105 kph Fuel cost $328.23 Total Km = 3266km Total Fuel = 395L Total Fuel cost = $595.38 The variation in price of fuel for the two trips was mainly due to the 80km distance difference and the variation in fuel price over Easter weekend, Cheapest Fuel on the trip was $1.34L and the most expensive was $1.61L (good to see the ACCC kept the servos from Easter Profiteering) Add about $100 for accomodation and luckily im not a huge eater so $60 for food (including dinner at the club) Approx. cost of trip $700.00 add a bit more if you count the service beforehand $179.00 and the probably not needed but better to be sure checkup at Newcastle on the return trip $84.00 So a week and a half of my time, and say $900.00 Was it worth it? You bet ya..... see you all again next year.
