Welcome and you will love Italy and it's people and the food YumYum, my daughter loves it, Croatia will be interesting ? Hope you enjoy your journey and keep safe, as the driving in Italy can be pretty hectic., they park really close to you almost squashing you and fast very fast lol you will get used to it after a while, All the best.
What model is your Antara? Is it Automatic ?
Good luck and enjoy

Hi Troops,
Thank you for the welcome, we have prchased a 4x4 model, and have averaged around the doors at 32mpg, went on journey to glasgow and with cruise control on averaged 35..but interesting to see what we get on holiday with the Antara, as last year with same caravan to Italy and france with our Jeep cherokee 2.5 crd was 27mpg. Looking forward to getting away...food and weather..yahoooo
