We laugh but during the strikes of 2000, i remember working for a well known cross channel ferry operator where, thanks to the "weekend break" deals they were offering to the Channel Islands, people were paying the 35quid to get across and filling up not only their vehicles but just about any container they could lay their hands on.
Some numpty in a Escort estate filled up a couple of those cylinrical water containers used for caravanning (Aquaroll's?) .
Anyway whilst rummageing around in the boot before making his way up to the cabin he knocked open the little plastic drain tap on the bottom and promptly filled up the inside of his car with 40 ltrs of unleaded
I hate to think of what some of those people, obviously despreate to remove themselves from the gene pool, have used to "store" fuel this time.
Anyway, loads of fuel here in France and i'm still only paying about 1.30gpb per ltr of diesel.....and no roat tax.......MOT's every two years etc..etc.. Vive L'Europe
