    Engine : 1.8VVT

    Default Would you have the brass neck to.........

    .....put £3.01 petrol in your car?

    Stopped in my local Tesco garage on my way home from work to fill the Vectra up. As I'm standing there, this clapped out old Volvo pulls up at the pump beside me, and the fellow starts putting fuel in too. 2 seconds later he's away in to pay, and I look over at the pump he was using, and it showed the grand total of £3.01.

    I'd have been well embarrassed to go in and pay for that!!

    Money bags, I wish!!

    I just don't see the point in putting £10 in several times a month, when I can just go once or twice and fill up!
