The petrol station was hammered, people queuing everywhere. (I only stopped there for a Gregg's sausage roll and a cream cake). Now that's value for money!

No it does'nt... I used mine the other month and it actually cost me more than what it would have done if I had paid cash... Not used it since.

There are fuel cards and then there are fuel cards.

If you can get a "Platts +" card then you will not go too far wrong.

Beware of those offering "x" p below national price, you would probably be better off with a pump priced card.

And seriously, the main problem with fuel prices is the first £1 per litre not the last 2.5 pence

amazes me how folk moan about mpg and cost of fuel etc.

It is what it is, If one charges correctly it should NEVER be an issue.

While on the subject of Kangoos, I need a replacement engine for one of mine, anyone now where I might get one? It's a 1.5dci on a 05 plate and only done 74 k miles!

But even were you to be pulled out with local 50 mile jobs the battery hire brings the per mile running cost up to the cost of running a diesel!
