I just park at pump where the filler is on the other side and have to pull the fuel hose over the roof of the shogun - nobody ever questions as you are struggling with the hose and never think that you are not filling the car up but a 25l fuel tank

Also saw an Enviornment Agency RIB filling up this week at a Petrol Station

You'd be surprised what you can get away with-ask her if she fancies a ride...

I managed to persuade a rather attractive blonde WPC to come for a ride on my bike at Stonehenge in the middle of the solstice 3 years ago like that. Her colleague had originally come over to bollock me for parking on the verge.

Guess who didn't get a ticket!

I use the same Morrisons as Nasher - never had a problem whether towing the rib or just filling up 2 25l portable fuel tanks - mind I'm usually filling the disco as well so even at their prices they make some money out of me
