Pah. When I did my class 1 training we had to stop for fuel on one of the days. After £160 the needle on the fuel guage just about hit quarter of a tank & that was over 2 years ago when fuel was cheaper. Made me feel so glad to be going home in my economical 190E. Mind you, the bootspace was nowhere near as good...

oh, and if anyone sees my coupé on the hard shoulder of the M6/M40/M42... can I have a tow please? :cry:

I know what you mean -- especially after the heavy rain and a dose of intermittent engine anti-pollution system defective last week :roll:


Does anyone else use Google Latitude?
That might be fun to have on.
PM me for my email address if you want.
