Can be found here:
I have used about 693,29 l of fuel for 8 099 km, that gives me a consumption of 8,56 l/100 km.
The Ford have been filled with E85 (Ethanol), 80, 90, 92 and 95 octane.
Recalculated into SEK it has roughly costed 6 302,60 SEK or 78 SEK/100 km.
Everything back to normal, the Ford is back where it belongs and the SL is out again…
9 000 km later…
We used a Nikon D5100 with a Tamron 18-200, Canon EOS 600D with 18-55 and a Samsung Galaxy S2 for the photos, turned out to be 797 and 4,3 GB after cleansing.
The Ford is recovering in Hanna and David’s garage for a few days, then it is off to Norrland again:
When arriving in Stockholm it had 276 524 km on the meter:
When we left Stockholm it had 268 425 km on the meter, this means we have driven 8 099 km.
To put is some perspective, Stockholm->Bomby is according to Google maps 8 504 km if you drive a car, this includes ferries, mine doesn’t.
Los Angeles->Miami is 4 400 km…
Stockholm->UlaanBaatar (Mongolia) is 7 500 km including ferry, about another 1 000 km Beijing.
To our distance we can add Kramfors->Stockholm turn and return, roughly 1 000 km, equals about 9 000 km.
Or at least Skåne…
Never thought I would be so glad to see a bridge:
Swedish Customs were a little bit grumpy about the alkohol, but I did not have that much and no heavy load in the car, they asked, where have you been, I replied:
-Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Estonia, Lithuenia, Latvia, Germany and now Denmark..
And yes, we have nice sunsets in Sweden also:
I stopped to eat t McDonalds somewhere north of Malmö, good thing I am used to not understanding what people say, couldn’t understand a word…
Then I went to Gothenburg for a well needed shower and nights sleep.
Stopped at Bordershop to “fill up” the car, bought a years supply of beer, it became a lowrider:
Bye Germany and Bordershop:
Denmark, here we come:
I think my car was the highest of the lowriders, some people just packed the car full, no concirn about the weight.
We have a lot to learn from germans about building roads and also about driving on them. Had a 300 km drive from Prora to Puttgarden, 200 of them on Autobahn, 3 lanes in each direction, no speed limit, people to the left drive 100 km/h, I put cruise control on 140 km/h, was in middle and to the left, Mercedes, Porsche, BMW and a few Audis rule…
Basically, if you see a premium car, get out of the way, these guys have the cruise control set for 200+ km/h.
Prora is a german vacation resort on the island Rügen, built 1936-39. The Nazis decided thay needed a recreation area for the german people and started building a huge complex, 6 floors, 4,5 km long nd 150 m from the beach. Today some parts are falling into decay, very little part is used and I noticed construction workers cleaning up in some parts.
Very nice and white beaches, time glass sand:
Managed to find an opening to g inside, don’t think you are supposed to, but where I went you could see it had probably been used in some way until 30 years ago.
But on the other hand, Prora is a very nice resort, definately coming back:
Was also asked to move the car if I didn’t want it towed…:
