I hate to admit it, but Im considering this !!

Mrs E has a little cli o, and as a shopping trolley/short distance commutor I can't fault it... economical, resonable nippy/agile and very reliable .. I couldn't sit in it for more than an hour as it would kill my back .. but for shorter trips .. no problems at all.

My trip to work takes about 35 minutes, so it might be just what I need.  :y

Wifey's Captur 1.5dci was doing around 50mpg between Barnsley and Sheffield with zero motorway driving.

Ive got 2 Corsa 1.2's, ones a a Van and the other a 3 Door Car, both are Dual Fuel LPG and save me an absolute fortune in Fuel Money.

I would highly recommend them for little cheap run arounds , ok there not the fastest things on the planet but do a good job of MPG, wack them in 5th at 25mph upwards and they will save you fuel.

Plodding in and out of London I get around 37mpg on LPG, thats about the same as around 44 MPG on Petrol litre for litre, but cost wise at 55p a litre for LPG works out the same as buying Petrol or Diesel and getting around 90 mpg (6.5p a Mile). On a Motorway or good run I can squeeze about another 30% out on MPG.

the 1.2 is the one to go for, forget the 1L which is a 3 Pot theres just not enough torque and your end up potentially doing more fuel.

Chain rattle on Start up is fairly normal for a 60K Plus Corsa and nothing to worry about, as for the rest there a cheap fix to keep on the Road.

Not planning on doing so Henry. The vegoil experiment last nearly 10 years and saved me lot of money when I really needed to do so.
Money isnt quite as big a problem , now but lack of energy to do the collecting, filtering and look after a 30 year old car is though.  ;)

I'd imagine that cars capable of running on veggie oil are getting pretty thin on the ground these days?

I want something with high mpg and low or zero ved, for three fifths of far call, obviously.  :)
Corsa is 145 pa for ved, which as too high, although the car itself is cheap, so I shall have a think.
I hear Honda c90's are good on fuel and cheap tax  :P

.......and chasing chickens.

Im trying to justify to myself replacing the chip fat wagon (whether or not I get it fixed) with a small more modern hatchback.......

Not looking for something exciting to drive, just as cheap to run as possible....

Its only for getting to work and back after all.

Sounds like Albs is the perfect candidate for an EV:y

If I could find a cheap one it would be perfect. Got a charging point thing at work I can use.


......and just think of all the sexy girls it would attract.
