    What´s the longest trip (from home) you´ve taken with your Accord :Hooray:and where did you go :vtec:?

    ... o.k. ... I just start ... our longest trip ... I think, it was in summer 2011 to the south of france - not far away from the sea (massif des maures) At the end, the whole round trip was ~ 2300 miles. Beautiful landscape and a really nice trip - with our reliable Honda of course without any problems :Smile:

    Hi ACC-CDI-2T,
    I plan to go to your homecounty next April: Münster (tankmuseum). Was also considering the UK one in Bovington.
    From where I live that will be around 700 km in one day.
    And...that might be one of the longest trips ever this car will make in my hands. Use her for daily commuting, but not for holidays.

    I used to have a holiday home in South West France so visited it at least once a year with my Accord Tourer. No problems at all and distance from home here to France was about 875 miles. Staying there for a few months meant that I covered over three thousand miles all in.

    Returning home with the Accord loaded with wine and assorted bits I used to achieve around 54 MPG.

    It was the 2.2 ICTDI. I kept to speed limits on the French autoroutes and did no more than 75 mph.

    Could be worst you could drive a Mustang like Clarkson did last week, and have to fill up every 140 miles.
