Between 92,459 miles per myrialiter....and on a run 147,935 miles per

This is because I have cut down the weight of my car to 10.55 quintals, or a
little over 1 tonneau (unladen of course!)
or put more simply...between 5.63 & 9 myriameters per myrialiter.

which means between 3.7 & 5.9 round the world trips per myrialiter...This has
got me worried now because, from  data posted on this web site I cannot expect
to fill-up my car with more than 2 myrialiters before...it dies!!
