With a gross train weight of a little under 3500kg (in accordance with me licence Wink Grin)  Frank will do roughly do between 30 - 40 mpg towing, depending on wind and roads.

He's here to stay now as we are having to whack a new clutch on.  We were looking at a Nissan Terrano 2 2.7TDi but that was roughly 16 -17 towing as well Shocked.

I have beem using a 1600cc vectra to tow my caravan which is a 2 berth and quite light although any hill meant 2nd gear
I am looking forward to using the Gall to tow. As well as a bigger engine (2.3 petrol) she looks better

Aye!

2.3 is cool for towing, don't even know the caravan is there, (unless you look in the various mirrors!). does zap the juice a bit, 20+ mpg if you take your time and don't clout it when you climbing a hill. will sit comfy and straight all day long, dual carriageway. motorway or country lanes, don't forget the 50 MPH speed limit for country roads, i didn't know about until recently, have been lucky not to clock some points!
definitely doesn't get bossed about by the caravan like some cars i have driven, seen!

I would like to state for the record that mine IS a MK1, and the MK2 can oinly be an improvement!

The Policeman pulled over a car and strolled up to the drivers window: "Excuse me sir, but do you know that you're driving without a rear light?"

The driver jumped out and ran to the rear of his car and let out a whimpering groan. The driver seemed so genuinely distressed that the policeman took a sympathetic view: "Don't take it so hard, it's not all that serious an offence..."

"Isn't it?" the driver cried, "Where's my caravan gone!"
