You can’t fuel me!

I have said in the past that owning a car and then moaning about putting fuel into it to make it work is proof enough of the stupidity of some people. Its like buying a cat to keep you company and then being astonished that it needs feeding and taking to the vets once in a while. Since the dawn of time (well since I started driving) people have been moaning about the price of petrol. I remember when we all went nuts as it hit 50p a litre (yes I AM that old) and again when we all fainted as it tipped then infamous £1.00.

My Cars January 2010



On a personal note, I would like to thank all of you that have supported and followed the blog and my rantings over the past year. There are lots of plans for 2011, including a trip to Japan and a race around the Isle of Wight! I have a number of motorsport events pencilled in as well so there may be a lot of exciting posts coming. Or there might just be a year of ranting as petrol hits £1.50 a gallon and people still drive at 28mph in 60 zones…

Happy New Year!
