Thanks. I'll copy that and keep it to hand.

I regularly take the long way round to get better mpg at the cost of going further and using more petrol! As I have said elsewhere, returning good mpg (the game), is more important than saving money on petrol.

Just an aside, how do I insert a hyperlink, but with text?
Quote
if/when the road is reopened.
Technical way:
* Type (url=???)<Insert your text here>(/url)

But:
* Replace '()'s with '[]'s
* Replace question marks with the URL (contents of browser address bar).
* Your text replaces the <> bit.

So an example using round brackets to avoid it being picked up by the forum software as a URL would be:(url=http://somedomain.com/document)This is the url text(/url).

The less technical way is to type the text, highlight it then click the button with an image of the planet Earth and a document. Then append =??? after the first 'url'.

But I is a programmer so I do not do stuff the untechnical way  :P

I find that my most fuel efficient speed is 60 mph on the speedo (about 53-54 mph on GPs).

I'm surprised that Jocko finds the speedometer error so high.
If I cruise at 60 mph my satnav reads 58 mph and at 30 mph it reads 29 mph.
It will vary (to some degree) based on your tyres. As they wear the speedometer should become less (or more?) accurate. My experience isn't so bad as Jocko's though. 60mph is currently about 57mph and 50mph is currently 47mph according to GPS.

I also remember the 56mph figure for fuel consumption which I always assumed came from 90kmh. Thinking about it the revs seem to be the same on my car for 60 as for 50 (1,800) so presumably the CVT must be choosing a slightly higher ratio.

Still, although 10% better mpg is nice, driving 70% further means the diversion is costing me more. Currently everyone is waiting to see if/when the road is reopened. I recently discovered that it's the county council paying for it and since Northants council is effectively bankrupt it doesn't sound too good :(

The error on mine is 3 mph at 70. It's the only time I tend to look at the GPS speed and it consistently shows 70 mph on the speedo as 67.

Just to add the bearing issues were down to metal swarf not being removed from gearboxes and destroying the bearings

this means rear wheel bearings tend to get noisy and fail MOT at about 40k.
Mine are still the originals. At 107,000 miles!

All the ones on our earlier Jazzes had to be replaced ( by me) at or around 40k.

Maybe they changed something for the 2006 model due to number of failures. Can anyone with 2006 or later mk1 tell their rear wheel bearing experience.
I have a 07 model with 57k on the clock and all bearings seem ok so far
Mine is a 56 plate (2006) I can check the rear wheel bearing tomorrow and let you guys know what I find.

Welcome. It sounds like you could have the start of the dreaded input shaft bearing syndrome, which effected Mk 1 models of that age. With the engine running and the car in neutral, can you hear the noise? If you depress the clutch, does it go away? A noisy clutch release bearing only makes a noise as you activate the clutch, so it isn't audible when the clutch is not actuated. The gearbox input bearing is.
The good news is it will not fail. The bad noise is it will get steadily worse.
I took my car to a reasonably local Gearbox specialist (http://www.topgear.uk.net/home.html) and they replaced all the bearings and seals, with the gearbox in situ, for 324, which included parts and VAT.
My local garage quoted well over 1,000.
The car is now like new. I have since done 6.000 trouble free miles.
Best of luck.

Thanks for the replys Jocko and culzean I have done the test and It looks like it is defiantly the gearbox. but mind you it has done nearly 73K miles so not too bad going. I checked out the link you added, its a bit far for me because I am based in Huddersfield West Yorkshire if there was any local I would defiantly be checking it out because I'm going to have to get this done. As Culzean has mentioned its better to get it done sooner than later to stop more damage happening to my gearbox. Thanks for the replys everyone.
