Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

End in a 1.6-litre car in less than 11 hours 48 minutes at an average of better than 10.23 lit/1(X)km (27.6mpg), Chris Mitchell. managing director of Mitchell marketing, of Leicester. and Peter Hall, senior buyer tin HalfOrds, will give t:100 to the Motor and Cycle Trades Benevolent Fund.

They claim to have put up this performance in a 1.6-litre Toyota MR2 with Slick engine treatment to provide -a permanent low-friction surface." The journey was described as "more than 800 miles." How many more is unspecified.

Chris Mitchell observed: "Our iiiii was to set the highest possible average of fuel consumption combined with legal cruising speed.” It is difficult to reconcile an overall average of about 70inpli with observance of the speed limit, particularly, in Chris' words,

"bearing in mind the twisty roads and steep hills in Scotland and heavy traffic encountered in the West Country."

If you take this foolhardy challenge and conic to grief; don't blame me.
