I have a feeling my tax was 190 for 12 months in January.

Omegas were all produced before the "Gas Guzzler" band came in, so they should fall in the band below that, which actually has some pretty mundane cars at its' bottom end.

If my mobile phone were taking enough juice to make a significant difference to the fuel consumption of a 3.2 litre engine - or a 32 CC engine, for that matter, I'd be in the next county wrapping myself in bacofoil.

What cretins do they employ to write this drivel? >:(

Spotted on the DVLA web site advice for "Greener Driving":

air conditioning and other on-board electrical devices (like mobile phone chargers) increase fuel consumption, so only use them when necessary

So, exactly how many MPG will my mobile phone charger lose me?

Train movies

Thomas the tank engine

 ;D ;D ;D

they've changed the theme tune to thomas the tank engine, i'm not at all pleased

Yeh, and the fatty controller has put on a bit of weight also. toot, toot

 ;D ;D ;D

A mate of mine works for the local preserved railway. He was very excited about a year ago because they had a volunteer who would make a great fat controller.

Regrettably the tailor who makes their uniforms informed them that he could only cope with up to a 60" waist measurement :o

Oh, and for me it's got to be either bullitt or the italian job :-/

I'm fascinated by these sites. Images look about 6-7 years old IMO. They are still building half of my road.

A few gliders waiting to take off maybe I'm in one of them?

Grenham Common still just about resembles an airfield. They have taken the tarmac off the runway but not ripped up the hardcore yet.

Makes me want to start mowing the year into my lawn or painting it on my roof so I can work out when the next lot get taken  ;D

What on earth has happenend to the front end?

No washers on bumper, bonnet doesnt fit
methinks that car is a few inches shorter than it should me!

You're right. Something not right about it.

Still, he's painted the brake calipers red so I'd buy it  :y

Almost everything is junk these days.

.. and a lot of it defective by design ::)

I will probably record it on my HDD recorder. I'd put it on a DVD for you but will it let me? :-/

What I object to is that we talk about druggies being "clean" and "rehabilitated" when in fact we have just started feeding them with a legal drug, maintaining their addiction at tax payer's expense. Doesn't make them any use to society. Lock 'em up in a cell with nothing but food and water for a bit of cold turkey and contemplation I say. You reap what you sow after all.

Really sorry to hear that, James.  >:(

I hope it gets sorted.

Some thanks you get for being nice to people these days.

Right, I'm off for a smoke in the Westfield. When they stop me I'll tell them that it's OK because I can steer it with the throttle 8-)


Wthether high octane petrol does anything for you entirely depends on the engine. I would imagine Which did not understand this and thus did not test it correctly.

Then again, if you believe the oil companies' marketing you'd think every car would benefit from it when in fact only a small percentage will.

Despite only having a few dozen houses we had a station then too. Can't justify it nowadays though (other than for steam train rides).

Makes you realise how fast we're building houses There's a couple of dozen of them in our village on those maps. Now there are hundreds (and another 200 about to be built) ::)
