    Angry gutted,having to use my car for work!

    well as i was off for five weeks after hurting my back at work,it came as no surprise that when i went back to work on friday my vans been given to someone else and im no getting it back! thats what happens when you work for pedantic council gaffers like i do! i hate using my car for work as it gets filthy and boot is full of tools! oh and a v6 turbo auto is not going to do 50 mpg in town driving! might have to invest in a wee diesel van of my own but tbh i could really do without expense! off for a sob now!

    i would also look at your insurance as you may not be covered not unless your work will insure it

    It also has to be one, permanent place of work though, if you go to a couple of different places to work then that's considered business use.
