View Full Version : from london to ukraine
Hi just bought an Fto GR in London and drove to the east of Ukraine in one go ( 3days) 2000 miles
The car was great and I'll post the story of the journey here if anyone is interested.
Car performed fantastic apart from the heater throwing in the towel about half way and had to bypass it.
so hello to all back in the Uk
Wow! that's some road trip! Are you based in the UK or Ukraine?
WTTC. you were brave. I personally would attempt something like that but only after owning the car for a while to find out if it was up to it first!
Hi i live and work in the ukraine you can see my web site on www.mm-agencies.com we sell plastics machinery here
its a great country but the roads are extreme and the cops ah ha corruption every time they stop you slip them 50 $
it stinks from that point of view but then look at our politicians so what's the difference
It was hard driving with an unknown car but she performed great was really impressed by the fto my last car was an mr2 but the fto beats it hands down for touring
I had a plan the car cost 1000$ from a dealer in london if she had given up the ghost I would have walked away and jumped a train ,, not very nice re the old girl ,,but now shes in the auto service getting some well deserved tlc
can i ask does anyone know which mitsubishi heater matrix are interchangable with the FTO one
the garage just phoned and said the matrix has a whole in it does any other model heater radiator fit the fto
that's one hell of a drive!!
Sorry I can't help with what other heater matrix fit, I think you'll be struggling and have to get another, shipped out, if it's just a hole in the heater radiator these too are fto units and not sure on others that will fit but they're not too expensive to buy and ship.
good luck with the car and we need pictures of the fto in foreign lands!!
Looks like the garage has found a fix for it but Ill order a new one jsut in case
attached is a pic of the car before i left if anyone knows any history on this car info appreciated good or bad
its had a hard life from what I can tell but the number may jog a few memories
thanks again craig
How much fuel do you think you used?
I'm thinking of driving to Croatia when I've finished my car.
On the ukraine side I used 900 grvn dont know the £ exchange rate as I work in dollars which is 7.95 grvn to the $,,,,,, fuel here is approx a dollar a litre
From london to the Polish border I think i spent about 150 euro
Filled the tank 3 times at approx 45/50 euro a time ,, but I tried to stick at a constant speed kept the acceleration down to a min, was really driving for economy at every possible chance
hope that helps
never felt at any time the car was heavy on fuel
