|Subject: Re: Car engine size needed in UK|
G'day Ziners, hello Sally,
We have done lots of driving in UK over the last 30 years, and you will not have any trouble with anything over 1 litre engine - probably 1.4 would be ideal. The economy angle is the real pointer - petrol is sold in 'star' rating (like our ULP and ULP premium) and at around 80p a litre, it's roughly twice what we pay (nearly 3 times US prices).
The A roads are def. the way to go if you want to see anything at all except speeding semis and concrete, note that the number of digits after the A is relevant to the grade of road - A100 is narrow, A10 a bit wider, and A1 is more or less highway. B roads are usually windy and hilly (nice, but slow) and anything without a classification is a farm track.
Hope you have a beaut time.
Paul (just along the road in Sydney)
