The whole thing is very interesting.

What's your usual travel speed?

Depends where I am, and if I am on a rush job or not. In Germany and Italy I take it up to 170 at times, in France I will not go faster then 140, which for me and my van is the most comfortable speed to travel on. In Belgium, Holland and UK I intend to keep it below 130. I will never exceed the speed limit with more then 40, as in most countries it means that license will be lost.

Well, that's pretty much for a loaded van, isn't it? Braking distance gets way longer...

Apart from safety concerns, I understand that in this activity time is more important than fuel and mechanical consumption, right?

Well, of course it also depends on the load. I won't load anymore then 1500 kg anyway. My boss pays for the fuel, and he tells me to go like hell at times. And on these Mercedes Sprinters...They go forever.

That's why I don't like the M70. Once a Romanian guy overtook me when a heavy truck was coming from the opposite direction and was already very close.

You can see this type of things everytime you drive a long way in Romania on our main roads...
