The Jamboree van now has a Subaru Ej20 engine fitted and what a transformation it's made. So much more "drivable" hills are doddle, motorways are more fun . It's made going away for weekends more enjoyable.
We've been to France, Belgium and Holland this year. Next year North Holland towing the new bike then using the bike to explore , happy times :ok

It's back on petrol which has freed up some space inside the van as we no longer have a cabinet with an log tank .
I've been checking mpg and I'm getting between 26 and 28 mpg. Mainly on smaller roads and quite hilly around North Yorkshire moors and Yorkshire dales.
With those figures I'm well chuffed.
