Sir, - I notice in The Motor Cycle that " Ixion " says that small twins are very heavy spirit consumers. I should like to tell you that I have a lady's 2 ¾ h.p. Douglas, and a short time ago I did 130 miles on a tankful (which holds just under a gallon) of benzole, and with petrol I obtain 120 miles to a tankful. I enclose photograph of myself and machine.
(MRS.) DORIS ROOTS.
