T-D - I never said I kept my tank low! I implied that some people could do to save weight and thus fuel.... Those people are probably hyper-milers, but that is just pointless for me. It's like making your engine work harder just to heat up your underwear, when there are perfectly good heated seats...
With a Citigo/Up, the mpg is good enough, and with my annual mileage, even £5* a litre is do-able. Fuel has always been far too cheap - witnessed by the idiots hammering about in massive vehicles and endless gridlock. Since I'm a life-long member of the "pedal to the metal" set, it's probably just as well my wife will no longer indulge me with another 'proper car'.... At least until there is a decently-priced BEV (unlikely), or fuel cell, or synth fuel alternative to my nice 75ps car....
Yes i understand. I was only joking about you running out of fuel. Heated seats? If only they were. I needed them the other day when it was 40 degrees lol.
I also do not care about the price of fuel. I fill up and it lasts me for 3 months. Its amazing the MPG the car gets when it is not driven.
I do quite fancy an electric car if and when they come down in price. At the moment it would be either the Honda E or the Mini E.
What about the price of Milk. It has gone from 50p a pint to 70p. Everything has gone up. I now spend £40 in the supermarket each week instead of £30 for the same amount of food.
