This car should be back in my possession in the next while.
The plan is a trackish setup but still road legal, something along the lines of SteveP's or NeilM's.
It's back completely standard at the moment, and my Dad has it fairly wrecked tbh. But I'll make it awesome again. :dr

Just missing the extra 30bhp now
Plans sound good anyway.

Is there any chance you've got a caliper sticking? Even if its only sticking a bit it can cause a big MPG decrease.

Otherwise as above probably just the weather.
