    So we are going to pack up and head to Byron Bay this Sunday. I haven't been up that way for 7 years or so. I'm really looking forward to doing the trip in the Bus this time. Hopefully score some wave's and chill for the week. Love a good road trip!

    I remember spotting more than 20 different kombis in a single weekend once... normally the place is packed with 'em. You'll have a blast and should get plenty of waves!

    Nah mate , stock tank 60ltrs i think it is . It just loves the highway. I'm sure the Subaru motor has a lot to do with it. I'm stocked to get good miles though , fuel was $1.71 this morning.

    Haha I lie...... I did fly past a yellow one near Coffs , but it was up to it's waist in grass sitting in someones paddock . Maybe everyone went away in the first week of school holidays and now they are all at the mechanics.:lol:

    Yep injected 2.2ltr I'm not sure bout the revs at 100km , I don't have a rev taco . I don't seem to use much accelerator when i'm cruising at that speed . I've only just got my foot on it and i don't have to gas it up hills very much.
